“If you have spent any time with her, it is clear to see how hardworking she truly is. This is shown through her desire to be a nurse, which requires drive, skill, and immense knowledge, while also possessing a care for others wellbeing. I think she is made for this profession, and I know that she will do amazing things for her patients and those she works with.”

~ Sarah O’Day – Student (Peer)

“Thank you so much for the generous opportunity to receive this scholarship. I am blown away by this foundation, as it is my second year receiving this scholarship. It has helped me tremendously this past year in allowing me to focus on my academic career. This scholarship has truly been a blessing and I can not thank everyone on the board enough. The way the Anchor Scholarship Foundation has impacted my academic and personal life is unbelievable! I am so excited to be furthering my education in the medical field, thanks to you all. It is truly a weight lifted from my shoulders financially, which allows me to focus on my education rather than picking up more hours at my job. I have so much gratitude to everyone who is a part of the Anchor Scholarship Foundation, and hope to make you all proud!”
