Beta Sigma Phi's Preceptor Gamma Alpha's Service Committee has chosen Austin resident Crystal Coe to receive this year's $300 scholarship. Coe was given the same award two years ago.
She obtained her CNA license in 1992, received QMAP and ACF certification in 1996, graduated from LPN school a year ago.
Coe is currently enrolled in the RN program through the College Network/Excelcier College online program. An accredited online college recognized in Colorado.
Her intensions are to continue her studies through the summer semester and perhaps through the fall to complete her Bachelor's degree. Additional plans are to pursue a Master's degree with a goal to become a Nurse Practitioner.
"I enjoy working in the healthcare field," she said, "and have compassion for the elderly. I have been fortunate to be able to help with start-ups of different types of healthcare programs including the PACE program in 2008-2010."
Dina McEwen, president of the sorority presented the award. The Service Committee has been offering the scholarship for the past seven years, awarded to a female applicant enrolled in a course of study to further her education.blog comments powered by Disqus
