ECCF scholarship aids Mosier in pursuing nursing career
At the Elk County Community Foundation (ECCF), scholarships really do change lives. Olivia Mosier, a nursing student at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, is grateful for the Michelle A. Campbell Memorial Nursing Scholarship she received from ECCF this year. Mosier stated, “Thank you for choosing me as a recipient of this scholarship. I really appreciate the support from my community as I am finishing up my schooling and preparing to commission into the Army and begin practicing with my RN license.” Olivia used her scholarship money to help with books, nursing supplies for clinical, and travel expenses to and from her clinical site in Pittsburgh this semester.
This summer, Mosier spent a month at Fort Sam Houston, Texas, where she participated in a nursing summer training program through Army ROTC. Olivia said, “I applied for the position last fall and was ecstatic to learn this past spring that I had received my number one choice of hospitals at Brooke Army Medical Center. It was an amazing privilege to learn and work in the only level 1 trauma center in the Department of Defense. I head back to IUP to begin my nursing clinicals for pediatrics and obstetrics this fall.” The Campbell scholarship is available annually to a student enrolled as a second year student or higher in an accredited nursing program.
This year over $277,239 was distributed to deserving students, thanks to the all the donors who have established scholarships funds at ECCF. The Elk County Community Foundation Board extends their gratitude to our donors for contributing to the future of our community through their educational support.
