Person is currently enrolled in the EACC Nursing Program, and plans to graduate in May 2017. After completing EACC’s nursing program, she plans to continue her education at the University of Central Arkansas to obtain both a Bachelor and Master degrees in Nursing.

The late Marguerite L.

Ms. Burt was a registered nurse for over 70 years, following in the footsteps of her mother and grandmother.
“I am very honored to be selected for this scholarship, and I am excited to have the opportunity to further my education,” said Person.
