Happy New Year TJ Myrick Family and Supporters!
It’s Madison, this year’s scholarship winner! I am currently making my way through my first year of nursing school with the grace and support of the Myrick foundation. Receiving this scholarship has been a saving grace for me. Financial responsibilities had always taken the driver seat throughout my college career and since receiving this scholarship, I have had the privilege to push it back and truly focus on my studies. I am happy to report that I finished off my first semester of nursing school with all A’s and made the Dean’s List for Fall 2018! Through my first semester, I was given a plethora of knowledge, life lessons and skills that I will carry with me for the rest of my career. Being in the clinical setting has continued to shed light on why I want to be a nurse and encouraged me to further embody my passion for helping others.
This passion continues to grow stronger every day and has pushed me to step outside of my comfort zone to take on more leadership roles (hopefully more information will come with my next update. The nursing professionals I am meeting through my clinical rotations never cease to amaze me with their compassion and encouragement. I have never been more driven to be an extraordinary nurse then I am today and that is all thanks to this foundation! I am forever grateful for this remarkable foundation. Your generosity and support is a blessing and I will never be able to say thank you enough.
Nothing but love and blessings to you all!
