Like a lot of people, Shane Corts family lives paycheck to paycheck. His mom works three jobs, but money is still tight. Earning scholarship help lightens the burden.
Corts is a 2015 Leslie High graduate who started out working toward the nursing program, completed the prerequisites and was accepted. Then, he realized nursing wasn’t his calling. Now he’s started the new dental hygiene program and is very excited. He received the J. Sterling Wickwire Scholarship and the Guenther Dental Hygiene Scholarship.
“Any money that I receive can be a relief for us, it is amazing. It means a lot,” Corts said.
