Through my time as an airman, and by
virtue of my family’s servitude, I found my way to the field of nursing. What I value
and cherish most about nursing, and about George Mason University is its inclusivity. As a veteran, a nurse, an African-American male, I feel welcomed, valued, and appreciated
as a member of this community. The scholarship support provided by ERPi and the donors are the life vests that keep students like me afloat while we
attempt to traverse higher education.
