Fall 2016 Laura Ashley Storey Memorial Nursing Scholarship - Vickers

7/11/2017

The Laura Ashley Storey Memorial Nursing Scholarship was established in memory of Laura in 2010 by the Blackburn family. Laura was a practical nursing student on the Sparks Campus and would have graduated in August 2010.

As a single mother, Kirbee Vickers was determined to get a nursing degree to help provide for her daughter. She knew that the assistance of a foundation scholarship would ease the financial burden of fulfilling her dream of being a nurse. The Laura Ashley Storey Memorial Nursing Scholarship was an answered prayer for Kirbee. "My life has been a struggle at times, but my hard work, determination, and perseverance have led me to my final semester of nursing school," said Vickers. As for the future, she would like to work with the elderly and continue her education to obtain a BSN.
