Detailed Ratings

Well I graduated from Lyon County High School 2 years ago. I decided against my mothers opinion that I wanted to attend U of L. I went and was miserable in Lousiville. So I dropped out. Now I know that my mother was right. I should have attended wktcc in the first place. So I have just recently signed up for a summer class and then start full time in the fall of 2012. I'm really excited and nervous about the financial aspect of it too! But I am very determined to get my degree in Nursing. I love WKTCC because of the size of the college and the helpfullness of the advisors there. They have been so helpful to me so far. This scholarship would come in so helpful for me since I am in great need of a laptop computer!! I'm currently trying to figure out how I'm going to make this happen but I won't let up trying. My education is the most important thing to me right now. I would greatly appreciate receiving this scholarship. Ben Wilson
