Stacie
The Pathway Scholarship is such a blessing. I will be able to focus on my nursing program and on being a better nursing student.
With the Pathway Scholarship, Stacie pursued her dream of becoming a pediatric nurse and helping kids around the world.

Stacie finds motivation each time she turns on her phone.Two tiny faces stare back at her – twins photographed at the Haiti orphanage where she worked after the devastating earthquake in 2010 – identical reminders of why Tippett has returned to college at age 30. “Every time I get down and think college is too hard, I just look at that picture, and I know that, if I had medical knowledge then, I could’ve done more to help.”

For Stacie, wanting to do more led her to HCC's accelerated nursing program and her goal of becoming a pediatric nurse. She intends to have a career in the United States, and participate in medical missions around the world. “Studying to be a nurse, my eyes have been opened to the need around the world. I could go to this country for a week to help, and then that country for a week.”

Stacie got the scholarship support she needed to continue her education this academic year. She is one of more than 1,000 recipients of the brand-new, need-based Pathway Scholarship available at HCC. “The Pathway Scholarship is such a blessing. I will be able to focus on my nursing program and on being a better nursing student. I can put all my attention to where it needs to be – learning.”

Stacie is now an RN at a Johns Hopkins Community Physicians office in Frederick, MD, and she plans to return to Haiti as part of a mission team in July, now as a trained medical professional.
