2014 recipient of the 4-year-renewable Clyde and Mildred Wright Scholarship
"I will be pursuing a major in chemistry and a double minor in biology and Spanish. Currently, I am enrolled in the International Honors College at UNCG, and plan on studying abroad for a semester during my sophomore year of college. I have always been interested in securing a job in the medical field and have recently decided to pursue a degree in pharmacy. Therefore, I plan on completing my prerequisites for pre-pharmacy at UNCG before transferring to the University of North Carolina Eshelman School Of Pharmacy to earn my PharmD degree. These six years of schooling would have placed a huge financial burden on not only me, but on my whole family. However, with the help of The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina donors, my goals have become much more attainable. I would like to thank them for their support and belief in my educational future – they have made my college experience possible. Thank you so much."
