Helping Neighbors: Adult Education Scholarship and Mentoring Pays Off
F.I.S.H. is proud to announce that a young woman, who received and adult education scholarship from FISH and tutoring and mentoring services through their partnership with ZONTA, has completed her nursing courses with a passing grade and graduated earlier this month!
“Many hours were spent preparing, studying, teaching and learning over a 7-month period to get her ready for graduation,” says Janine, Zonta member. “I always had confidence in her that she had the strength necessary to make her dreams a reality, in spite of the many challenges she has had to overcome in her life. Thank you to everyone for all your morale boosting, small gifts that made a difference, and being there by just listening when we felt overwhelmed. Her success is ours, and I could not be happier than to have participated in her learning journey. The partnership with FISH and the opportunity to help young women learn and grow is heart-warming.”
