Nursing Scholarship Winners
 
4th Quarter, 2006

StraightForward Media is proud to announce that the winner of our 4th Quarter, 2006, Nursing School Scholarship is Dannie Myers, who plans to continue to work in the pre-hospital setting as a Flight Paramedic/RN in addition to doing Critical Care Ground Transport. She will be focusing on trauma and emergency care.

"Born in San Diego, California I was the only girl and the oldest of three. Having two younger brothers I was always patching wounds and comforting boo-boo’s. Inherently with two brothers I grew up as somewhat of a tom-boy, enjoying the outdoors and playing rough. I remember meeting the Firemen when they came to our school as children and wondering why there were never “Girl Firemen.” As I grew older, like all kids, I was always fascinated with the lights and sirens and the excitement that went along with Emergency Services. As a teenager working in a sporting good store I became familiar with a couple local Paramedics who shopped at my store often. I began inquiring about the world of EMS (Emergency Medical Services). They encouraged me to do a “Ride-a-long” with them and begin taking EMT classes; three years later I became a Paramedic.

On a personal level I was recently chosen to represent AMR (American Medical Response) of San Diego to compete in a National Paramedic Competition, put on every year by JEMS Magazine (Journal of Emergency Medical Services) in Baltimore, Maryland. I was teamed up with two other Paramedics as we competed against Paramedics and Firefighters across the Nation. We received the Gold Metal and have now been awarded an all expense paid trip to Australia in September of this year to compete in the world competition. A very large reward for simply doing something I love, taking care of others."

3rd Quarter, 2006

StraightForward Media is proud to announce that the winner of our 3rd Quarter, 2006, Nursing School Scholarship is Chrystal Solis, who attends UCLA's School of Nursing.

"I have always had an interest in the medical field; as a young girl, I would "doctor" my stuffed animals and little brother. As I grew older, I learned the importance and value of helping others. My parents were a tremendous influence, teaching me that compassion for others was very important. Most of all, my faith in Christ showed me to love others and care for them. These factors helped inspire me to serve people and become a nurse.

1st Quarter, 2006

StraightForward Media is proud to announce that the winner of our 1st Quarter, 2006, Nursing School Scholarship is Elizabeth Tsai.

"After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies at the University of Michigan, and working in the television media industry for two years post graduation, little did I know that I would consider a career change so soon. However, recent experiences have led me to select nursing as an appropriate choice. My reasons for pursuing nursing are very simple, yet focused: live my life to serve and benefit others; contribute to our society and the world at large; and be a part of the healing process in the lives of the broken."

2nd Quarter, 2005

StraightForward Media is proud to announce that the winner of our 2nd Quarter, 2005, Nursing School Scholarship is Doris Jean Caldwell, a student in the Maricopa Community College Nursing Program in El Mirage, AZ.

After graduating from high school, Doris worked two jobs to save up enough money to attend the local university. Unfortunately, after one semester she was forced to return home to care for her ailing mother, again working two jobs.

She determined that changing her career focus to the medical field was more practical to accommodate caring for her mother and having a versatile career that she would enjoy.

Doris maintains a 4.0 grade point average and will continue her education to earn a master's degree in nursing so that she may dedicate her time to work as a Family Health Nurse Practitioner.
