Congratulations, Marresa Ross! Marresa is one of twelve awardees of the health-focused scholarships from the Greater Lee's Summit Healthcare Foundation in 2018. Her award was for $5,000.
Marresa says, "Thank you so much for choosing me to receive this scholarship! It is a huge blessing. As we are all aware, college is expensive and it is very difficult to graduate debt free. This scholarship helps me get closer to that goal and it takes a lot of stress off of my family and I. It allows me to work less hours so that I can focus on studying and preparing to be the best possible nurse for my future patients. Thank you for investing in my education and thank you for investing in the future medical professionals!"
Since 2003, GLSHF has granted more than $1.3 million in scholarships or grants to a multitude of awardees designed to impact the health and well-being of the greater Lee’s Summit community.
