Gabriel "Gabby" Wright
Gabriel “Gabby” Wright of Fort Smith, AR has been a part of the Degen Scholarship program since Fall 2021 and is working towards her Masters in Speech Pathology at the University of Arkansas. She received a $3,000.00 award for the Fall 2022/Spring 2023 semesters.
Gabby worked with a Speech Therapist herself when she was young who helped her overcome the insecurity she felt for not being able to pronounce certain letters. She also shadowed a speech pathologist and “fell more in love with the career than I anticipated.” She would love to work with kids and the elderly and give back to her community, once she completes her education.
We would be incredibly lucky to have this young lady working as a speech pathologist in our area after she graduates!
