The Stacy Willis Memorial Scholarship for 2012-13 has been awarded to Heather Spillyards! She says:
My name is Heather Spillyards and I am a nursing student here at UALR. I plan to go on to pursue a Master’s in Nursing and become a nurse practitioner. My hope would be to specialize in pediatrics or family practice. During my time of studies and afterwards, I would like to help in free medical clinics and continue teaching children health awareness as I do through the YMCA. This scholarship will allow me to reach one step closer to my goal. Being that both my husband and I are in the program, the scholarship will help us more than I could possibly express. Thank for allowing me the honor of representing Stacy Willis and her legacy.
