Three Rivers Student Receives Allison Grace Daughhetee Scholarship
Amanda Vinson, a student at Three Rivers College, has received the Allison Grace Daughhetee Scholarship. Vinson, a non-traditional nursing student, received a $1,000 scholarship for the 2015-2016 school year. A mother of two children, as well as three foster children, Vinson currently works as a CNA while she completes her nursing degree.
“I’m here to try to make a better life for myself and my children, and thanks to this scholarship, that’s gotten easier,” said Vinson. “I love being in the Nursing program at Three Rivers. I’m happiest when taking care of others.”
The scholarship was endowed in memory of Allison Grace Daughhetee, the daughter of Three Rivers nursing students Ronnie and Melissa Daughhetee, who were in the process of completing their degrees when their daughter was killed in a car accident. Three Rivers College created the scholarship fund as a gift to Allison Daughhetee’s parents, announcing the endowment to the couple as they received their degrees in nursing. The scholarship is awarded annually to a non-traditional student in Three Rivers’ nursing programs.
