Unexpected but GOOD news

  1. GEE I tell you this week keeps getting better and better. Today I found out I have been awarded a scholarship for $2,500.00. I thought there was some kind of mistake maybe they had the wrong person then I thought well maybe it is suppose to be only two hundred and fifty dollars. NO it is actually a scholarship for twenty five hundred dollars and they do have the right person which is ME. I am so happy. It was much needed and I have been hoping for a scholarship to come my way for quite some time now. IT is a private foundation through my school and hospital that my school is associated with. I will be getting the money in 2 weeks and putting it away. It will be VERY nice for next semester because I will use it for books, supplies, childcare expenses, and other expenses associated with school like the cost of gas driving back and forth to clinicals. I am now looking for scholarships for my senior year even though it is nine months away many scholarship deadlines are right around the corner.

    Well take care everyone.
