Scholarship Awarded to ATC Nursing Student

The South Carolina State Society Daughters of the American Colonists recently awarded a $750 scholarship to Aiken Technical College nursing student Carmelita Diaz Lazaro.

To qualify for the scholarship, the student must have at least a 3.0 grade point average, have a financial need, and demonstrate dedication in working toward a nursing career, said Julie Hardaway with the organization

Lazaro, of Clearwater, SC, is in the College’s Associate of Applied Science in Nursing program. Her passion for caring for others is what motivated her to become a nurse.

“I want to be the kind of nurse that is going to help you feel better and also treat you and your family well,” she said.

Awarding the scholarship to a deserving student “brings tears to my eyes,” said Jayne Toole, also with SCSSDAC.

“I have all the admiration in the world for someone who is a nurse or wants to be a nurse,” said Toole.

“They are such a value and asset to the community,” added Hardaway.

For Lazaro, the scholarship will be helpful as she completes her education.

“It’s a big help and it came at a point when I really needed it,” she said. “It’s going to help me a lot.”
