Mckayla Ruettgers, 2015 Sholarship Winner
My first year of college at Western Oregon University is going great! My major is Biology and I have managed to get all A’s. I have found that I still have time for campus activities such as clubs and intramural sports. Having the scholarship has really helped me stay focused on my schooling as I am able to not worry about money as much. Although, I was able to become a Certified Nursing Assistant and I got my Emergency Medical Technician license over this last summer. With those I am working as a Certified Nursing Assistant for First Call Home Health. I also volunteer at West Salem High School as a lab instructor. I am very excited about completing my degree at Western because I love the campus and over all atmosphere.
