“She is an incredible leader among her classmates who also has the ability to demonstrate compassion and empathy. I have seen her take classroom content and apply it in real environments using critical thinking and skill. She is an exceptional student who is extremely dedicated to her work, but also manages to have passions outside of her course work that she regularly pursues. I have personally witnessed her balance multiple tasks with grace and precision.”

~ Heather Hancock – Clinical Instructor

“Over my last three years at college, a lot has changed, but a few things have been constant in my life. One of these has been the support that the Anchor Scholarship has given me. I’m so grateful for the generosity of this foundation and the donors that enable it to support students like me. Without the scholarships I received from the Anchor Foundation, I don’t know how I would have made it this far in school. I truly believe that the only reason I’ve been able to excel in my degree path these past three years has been due to the assistance I received from you all. Thank you so much for your support.”
