2021/2022 Recipient: Courtney Young
Courtney Young of Mulberry, AR is a new Degen Scholarship recipient who received her AAS in Radiography at UAFS and just got accepted into their Diagnostic Medical Sonography program! She plans to graduate in May 2023. Courtney has two sisters who are nurses, which inspired her to choose a career in the medical field. Being that she liked anatomy and learning about the body and how it work and functions, radiography was a perfect fit for her. She describes herself as being a "very determined person" who has done well academically all of her life. This young mother of two (a seven-year-old daughter and a six-week-old son!) will do very well and after graduation, hopes to secure a position as an Ultrasound Technologist in this area. We have a great feeling she will succeed!
