A Drumheller nursing student is that much closer to bringing her expertise back to the community after a presentation at the Drumheller Health Centre.
 
Ashleigh Harrison was on hand to receive a cheque for $1,000 from the Gaye Ross Memorial Nursing Scholarship.
 
Presenter Bob Ross said it's great to know his family is associated with a program that helps staff the local hospital with Registered Nurses.
 
"It's really nice to see Ashleigh coming back to Drumheller: that's just an extra bonus."
 
"Education is really expensive, and I come from a family that never saved money for me to go to university, so I have student loans and this definitely helps out with that," noted Harrison.
 
The Gaye Ross Scholarship was started in 1998 by Registered Nurses working at the Drumheller Hospital. Each year they award $1,000 to a student from the area to finish their nursing studies.
 
"I'm just finishing my final year in nursing right now," the Morrin woman told 99.5 Drum FM. "I applied for my final practicum to be here in January and then I hope to get hired here at the hospital."
