Eunice entered the WIOA program to attend nursing school at Vernon College in January 2020. She is from another country, so she had language barrier. She also has no family or relatives here for a support system. WIOA helped her overcome these barriers. She said, “WIOA has been of great help to me, especially when the COVID pandemic struck, and I lost my part-time job.”
Eunice earned an Associate in Applied Science in Nursing from Vernon College on May 15, 2021. While in training she earned two awards: one for academic excellence and the Faculty Scholastic award.
Eunice found employment as a Graduate Nurse at Advanced Rehab and Healthcare of Wichita Falls on May 27, 2021 making $31/hr.
She said, “Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I wouldn’t have made it this far without you. The tuition, Needs Related Payment checks, gas, and scholastic materials. I can add emotional, my list would be endless because all these factors go hand in hand. I emerged the best student in the nursing program. I am lost for words. You made this happen for me. Thank you so much!”
