This week, the Newman Regional Health Auxiliary bestowed $750 scholarships on several students in the Emporia State Department of Nursing.
Among those receiving a scholarship was Emporia student Abby Maycock, a junior in the nursing program. She says she was "excited and honored" to receive her scholarship. She also says she is looking at two potential career tracks after college.
Maycock says she wanted a hands-on career, and nursing was attractive because it provides an opportunity to help people.
Over 15 students were awarded scholarships. In all, the Auxiliary handed out $12,750 worth of scholarships.
