We are working with NOVA to identify two additional $1000 scholarship recipients for the winter quarter. These names will be announced in October, scholarships awarded in January, and the women introduced at our Spring fundraiser.
We received a heartwarming thank you from Lea Lines. What a difference she is going to make to our community! Here is just a part of her thank you: "Upon graduation from the very competitive nursing program at George Mason University, I am confident that I will be a significant contributing team member in the healthcare community. Ultimately, I see myself as an asset to the Labor and Delivery Unit, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, or the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit in one of the many reputable hospitals in the Northern Virginia area. It is my goal to serve my family, my school, and my community and to give back through professional nursing care. Once again, I would like to offer my gratitude for your generosity and thank you for making a difference by assisting me as I pursue my education.
Many thanks, Lea A. Lines"
