Nursing Student Earns Scholarship to Help Cover Program Cost

Isela BarkerTwenty-three-year-old Isela Barker is on her way to becoming a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) thanks to a $2,500 scholarship from the Horatio Alger Association of Distinguished Americans.

Isela is originally from California, but moved in with her grandparents in Niagara Falls and makes the daily commute to the Workforce Development Center in Cheektowaga for the 2018-19 school year.

To receive the scholarship, Isela had to write about why she wanted to be a nurse and why it was a good fit for her. She cited the many nurses in her family as inspiration.

This is the first time a student in the Workforce Development division’s LPN program has received the scholarship.
