Meet Heather

“This semester has been the best experience of my whole life,” Heather says, her enthusiasm contagious as she relates how she recently coached a first-time mother through labor and delivery and how the mother told her, “You are going to be a fabulous nurse.”

Her challenging schedule includes working full-time Monday through Friday at a landscaping company and after working all day, going straight to classes, labs and clinical rotations until 10 p.m. four nights a week.

She worries about spending enough time with her 14 year-old son, but knows that ultimately the sacrifice will be worth it when she receives her nursing degree in December 2010.

A second time LRAF scholarship recipient, “It was like Christmas and my birthday and the 4th of July all rolled into one when I received the letter and found out that someone was actually going to help me do this,” she said. “and you have no idea how much these funds have helped.”
