Focused on the Future: Pearson Scholar Looks Ahead to Graduate School
Prior to starting college, I knew my purpose in life was to become an occupational therapist. My educational journey started at Bluegrass Community and Technical College, a small community college in central Kentucky. A turning point came when I was inducted into Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. One of the perks of membership is access to numerous scholarship opportunities. Within many scholarship applications and lengthy essays, Pearson found me. I was honored to be selected as a recipient of the 2015 Pearson Scholarship for Higher Education.
Becoming the best student I could be
This awesome scholarship enhanced my college experience in several ways. Pearson provided financial assistance, a mentor and textbook assistance. Without all this, I would not have been able to continue my education. My mentor was simply amazing. She edited and proofread countless essays and papers for me and also wrote many letters of recommendations. She offered endless advice and supported me in every decision I made. The support and continued encouragement from her only encouraged me to be the best student I could be.
