Congratulations Mayse Pippin of Siloam Springs, the second winner in TRS’ 2015 Future Nurses Scholarship contest. Last summer, Mayse found out the need for nurses throughout the world when she went to Jinja, Uganda, on a church mission trip. She saw children there who were malnourished, ill and either could not afford medication or didn’t have access to it.
“My heart yearns to go back to Jinja with a medical team to provide treatment for those kids who are struggling day by day and can’t afford treatment,” Mayse wrote in her essay. “Taking care of those in need is what comforting and restoring lives personally means to me.” This is really amazing Mayse that you want to comfort and restore lives internationally! We look forward to your future adventures as a nurse! The third scholarship winner will be announced next week! Check back then!
