Kyesha Wadlington, EHI's Vice-President, is the initial inspiration of the TMW Nursing Scholarship Fund. The scholarship is in honor of the late Thelma and Mitch Wadlington, Kyesha’s grandparents who raised her in Chicago, IL. They were a constant support system throughout her journey of becoming a Registered Nurse. Alongside her village of family and friends, her grandparents provided financial support for the costs of nursing school when personal funds were not always readily available.
TMW Scholarship Fund aims to give that same support to African-American Nursing students embarking on a similar nursing school journey. This scholarship will help the graduates of an Accredited Nursing program pay for the National Nursing Licensure Exam fees, also known as the NCLEX exam. In addition, the scholarship will help pay for the costs associated with becoming licensed in the state of Illinois.
