Nia has been accepted to Towson University, where she plans to major in nursing and biology. Her goal is to become a neonatal nurse or perhaps a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) nurse. To help her prepare for her future career, Nia supplemented her high school classes by attending the Academy of Health Professions at the Calvert County Career and Technology Academy.
The Alice Bowen Memorial Scholarship provides a scholarship up to $5,000 annually to a Calvert County public school graduating senior who has completed the Academy of Health Professions program at the Career and Technology Academy and intends to pursue postsecondary education in the area of health professions. Applications are announced every February and awarded on the following May 15. For more information on how to apply for or donate to the Alice Bowen Memorial Scholarship, visit the fund’s home page.
