Meet the Recipients of the CCI Nursing Scholarship
Hometown: Amarillo, TX
West Texas A&M University
Bernise is working towards her BSN in hopes of becoming a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner. While being enrolled full-time in her degree program, Bernise works two jobs as a Door Dash driver and substitute teacher at her oldest daughter’s elementary school. After working full-time in a hospital, Bernise shifted her goal of becoming a Neonatologist to pursue nursing in desire of more hands-on care. “As a nurse you must be able to establish trusting relationships while helping patients heal,” Bernise says. “When it comes to nursing it is more than just medical care. A nurse must provide physical care, protection, education, a listening ear, and be empathetic and supportive towards their patients and families.”
Lauren Kate Segura
Hometown: Clayton, NM
West Texas A&M University
Lauren is in the process of acquiring her BSN from West Texas A&M University with goals of pursing a master’s in nursing. While working full-time, she has received academic honors by making the Dean’s list an has volunteered at a church health fair in Amarillo. Lauren is no stranger to heartbreaking life challenges but that has only shaped her attitude for the better. “I actively make the choice every day to find a silver lining in whatever situation I’m given. It’s important to pass on kindness and generosity. It’s important to me to lead with honor and charisma. I’m excited to carry on that mindset and lifestyle into my future in the medical setting.”
We congratulate both of our Fall 2022 winners, who were selected by our leadership team here at CCI.
