Gabrielle Ransom of Hughes, Arkansas has been awarded the EACC Foundation's Eleanor B. and Harry E. Beasley Scholarship for the fall 2023 semester.
Ransome is currently enrolled in the Associate of Applied Science in Nursing program at EACC. After graduating from EACC, she plans to continue her education at Arkansas State University to obtain her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and hopes to work as a nurse in the NICU. "I am so thankful to receive this scholarship," said Ransome. "It will help me to continue working toward my goal of graduating and becoming a nurse," she added.
The Beasley Scholarship was established in honor of Eleanor B. Beasley, longtime Board of Trustees member at EACC and her husband Harry E. Beasley. Their family established this endowed scholarship in 2004 to keep alive the love of education their parents exhibited throughout their lives. Dedicated to assisting students at EACC who graduated from an accredited high school in St. Francis County, this scholarship is awarded to a full-time sophomore student with a minimum 3.00 GPA.
