The Power of a Scholarship: Thanks from a Student
It is my distinct pleasure to thank you for your support of the Weatherhead School of Management. It would be difficult for me to overstate the impact your generosity has had on my experience pursuing an MBA focused on healthcare.
I am a native of South Louisiana, and as an undergraduate student I began working as a medical scribe specialist in a local hospital’s emergency room. After a few months and hundreds of patients later, I gained a management role in the program that included supervising 20 pre-med students. During my three years in this role, I was exposed to hospital administration conversations and meetings around the implications of the newly passed Affordable Care Act, patient care redesign, and hospital operations. I became enthralled with hospitals thus motivating me to pursue a master’s level education.
From the expert Weatherhead professors, to Cleveland’s world-class healthcare market, to the School’s emphasis on developing global leaders, Weatherhead quickly surfaced as my top option. After an excellent campus visit during Dean’s Weekend and the significant offer of scholarship support, I was entirely convinced that Weatherhead was the right fit.
Since beginning this past fall, I have developed lifelong relationships with students, alumni, faculty, and staff.
Weatherhead has quickly become my new home and this would not have happened without your generous contributions. I look forward to continuing your efforts by giving back to Weatherhead after I graduate. Thank you again.
