MFHS is proud to announce the recipient of the 2015 Kathryn Dickerson Scholarship, Daisy Sosa. Daisy currently is attending Wilkes University, pursuing a degree in Nursing. Daisy had graduated from high school and was attending Luzerne County Community College when she found out she was pregnant. She was referred to the Nurse-Family Partnership program and has met with her nurse Debbie Rutkoski for visits from pregnancy up until now. Despite the challenges she faces in having a baby and attending school, Daisy continues with her education. Her son Julian is now 16 months old. Daisy continues with her nurse visits, eager to learn and share in the growth and development of Julian. Daisy provides a stable learning environment for Julian and is a patient, compassionate caring mom. In addition to going to Wilkes University full time, Daisy also works part time at Timber Ridge in the dietary department.

Because of Daisy’s motivation and dedication to her son and her future goals, her nurse Debbie nominated her for this scholarship. She is a wonderful role model and has a bright future ahead of her. Congratulations Daisy!
