2011-2012 Recipient
“Sometimes the most courageous thing to do is to allow yourself to be vulnerable and to ask for help. I was under a state of duress. That’s how I found this scholarship… For a long time I was trying to find my place in the world and when I found the call to Nursing, it didn’t so much connect with my head, but resonated really strongly with my heart…But great endeavors are never done by yourself. There is always a network behind you, and in order to help you need to be able to make connections with people, with your heart. This scholarship is an affirmation that sometimes asking for help is the right thing to do, so you can help others.” –Ryan McCurine
