The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee has recently awarded four $500 scholarships to nursing students from across the state.
Recipients of the scholarship include Kaitlyn Kilan, Medford; Samuel Langley, Pauls Valley; Myranda Oliva, Moore; and Michelle Tripp, Braman.
Recipients will be attending universities including East Central University, Northern Oklahoma College, Western Governors University and Oklahoma City University.
Members of the WLC recognize the significant role nurses play in ensuring a high quality of life for all Oklahomans, especially those in rural areas. With the cost of education rising yearly, the committee is proud to provide these four students with scholarships to aid in their pursuit of a career in nursing.
“The members of our committee understand the challenges students often face when financing their education,” said Mignon Bolay, OKFB WLC Chair. “It is our hope that with this scholarship, we can help them achieve their goal of serving the residents of our rural communities.”
The WLC awards scholarships annually to students studying nursing at an accredited college, university or trade school. The students also must be an OKFB member or be a member of a Farm Bureau-member family.
The OKFB WLC promotes the importance of family and health, safety and crime prevention, state and national agricultural issues, voter awareness and citizenship, Agriculture in the Classroom and much more. To learn more about the WLC program, click here.
