The Julian T. Pierce Scholarship meant I have the wonderful opportunity to touch the lives of my patients. I'm able to minister with love, care, compassion, nursing skill and advocacy. This scholarship brought light to my life so I can be a light and help to my patients and families.

I'm so very thankful for the Julian T. Pierce scholarship for several reasons. The first being that the scholarship allowed assistance in me pursuing my lifelong dream of graduating college. Being a Native American single mom while trying to work can be hard but the scholarship money allowed me to put some monies away without the stress of working 40 hours a week. Also, the scholarship benefited me in allowing me to equip myself with the necessary tools to be successful in school such as a laptop and Wi-Fi in my home. I'm blessed to have received the scholarship!
