"I'm getting the tassel at Columbia State," says Williamson County Nursing Student Joshua Motes.
Motes was awarded the Saint Thomas Health Services Nursing Advantage Scholarship this past spring.
"He is an excellent representative of our nursing student body,” said Barbara Blum, interim director of nursing at Columbia State. “He is committed to quality in both patient care and academic excellence.”
"I am really excited and blessed,” said Motes, whose inspiration to work in the medical field comes from his love of people and desire to show compassion for others. "I've loved my entire experience at Columbia State.
Motes is currently employed as a nursing extern at Saint Thomas Hospital where he will also be working as a registered nurse after graduating from Columbia State. Motes will start his third semester of the nursing program at Columbia State’s Williamson County Campus in the fall.
