This scholarship is made in honor of Darlene Ellis. Raising a child with disabilities is never easy, but to do it while caring for others is amazing. She has always enjoyed caring for others, even before caring for herself. Nurses are super hero's in scrubs, they don't need capes. They nurture, they show empathy, they heal and they give tirelessly to see to it that other's needs are met.
What life experiences have influenced you in your decision to study nursing? How do you plan to make a difference in your community?
