Stacey is a returning student and Navy veteran attending the Physical Therapist Assistant program. After 20 years of service in the Navy, Stacey worked briefly as an administrative assistant. After realizing that an administrative job outside the military was not the best fit, she decided to go back to school to pursue a career that required teamwork, solving challenges and helping others. “I applied and was thrilled to be admitted to the Physical Therapist Assistant program. This program has the potential to allow me to work in a job that helps others and to be an involved parent.”
“This scholarship will give me financial peace of mind by facilitating school expenses. It will allow me to focus on my studies and family outside of class. It is imperative that I pass my classes and with this scholarship I will be able to focus on successfully completing this program. The books that are purchased with the scholarship money will be used throughout the PTA program and when I obtain employment these textbooks will be a critical part of my success at Madison College, passing the PTA board and providing quality care. I am incredibly honored and grateful to be selected for this scholarship. Thank you for your generous support,” said Stacey.
