I am very thankful to receive the Greater Lee’s Summit Healthcare Foundation Scholarship. This scholarship will help financially fund my dream of becoming a nurse. I am not sure what specialty I’d like to work with, but I plan to work towards my Doctorate of Nursing Practice in the future. This scholarship will help me to achieve my aspirations."
