For the Rapids City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – One lucky participant in Mid-State Technical College’s Program Showcase was presented with a $500 scholarship on Nov. 2 following the career exploration event. Lincoln High School student Jasmine Pleet was selected by random drawing to receive the scholarship after attending the Program Showcase on Oct. 23. The event drew over 425 high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors from area schools.
The scholarship may be applied to tuition at Mid-State any time through Pleet’s graduation year. When asked how she feels about winning the scholarship, Pleet said, “It’s pretty cool; I’m interested in health sciences and would like to get a head start on my nursing career.”
Pleet, who has always been drawn to nursing, added that a lot of her family is in the medical field. Her plans include applying her scholarship to the Nursing Assistant program at Mid-State.
