UABWC 2015 Scholarship Recipients

Lori Hicks
  was the owner/designer of Glass Designs from 1993 through 2011, doing design, production and installation of leaded glass windows and lamps and managed four part-time employees. Currently she is a nursing student and will graduate in the summer of 2016. She has maintained a GPA of 4.0 even though she takes a full course load while working a minimum of 24 hours as a skill trainer for Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores and is involved in community volunteering. One of her professors said of her: Ms. Hicks was one of the best students I have had a chance to be associated with in all my years of teaching.

Candeis Sampson  
received a B.S. in Biology from Oakwood University in Huntsville and worked at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center. Since then she has worked in private home health care and is currently working at University of Alabama Health Services Foundation in their insurance section. She continues to volunteer as a job readiness facilitator for The Love Lady Center.

She is a nursing student and will graduate in May of 2016. Because she is a post-graduate second-degree student, grants and loans are difficult to come by and until this spring she has not been able to be a full-time student. One of her professors said of her: She demonstrates a high degree of maturity and academic involvement that far exceeds her peers. Her goal is to eventually have her Doctor of Nursing Practice degree with a focus on communities in need.
