The Women of Quail Creek celebrated the accomplishments of four area high school senior women on April 24. These four young women from the Sahuarita Unified School District are the 2017 recipients of TWOQC scholarships. Each recipient shared her thoughts about the scholarship and its prospective impact on her life and gave the assembly a peek into the goals and dreams each hold as well as why being of service to others is important.
Daniela Reynolds of Sahuarita High School shared her love of ROTC and the impact it has made on her. Through that affiliation she learned that “service means a lot to me,” explaining some of the activities she engages in outside of her studies. Daniela will attend Pima Community College with less stress because of the scholarship that will pay for her entire first term tuition. She plans to become a dental hygienist.
Nathania Duarte, also from SHS, shared that the scholarship will allow her to focus on school rather than being stressed about financial concerns. “Service has taught me to be selfless,” she stated. As an example of her continued desire to help others, Nathania plans to be a neo-natal care nurse.
Carissa Gibson of Walden Grove High School plans to become a nurse practitioner. After sharing the impact of the financial assistance from the TWOQC scholarship, Carissa talked about her perspective on being of service, stating “It is important to leave more good” in the world.
Jenna Livingston, also from WGHS, will enter the University of Arizona Honors Engineering College in the fall. She plans to be an Environmental Engineer. The scholarship will help her work toward her dream of being a role model for young women in STEM careers. On the importance of being involved in service to others she stated, “I have an affinity for service to work for the collective good.”
TWOQC wishes each of these scholarship recipients well in their educational and life journey. As a member of the scholarship committee stated, “The future is in good hands with these talented young women.”
