Brandice Richmond has taken her interest in healthcare to whole new level. The 30-year-old married mother of one made a life changing decision when she decided to return to school. “I really wanted to better my life and my family’s financial situation,” shares Brandice. To help her reach her goal, Brandi applied for the Adult Re-education Scholarship application, a component fund of HCCF, created by John and Linda Zimmerman. The purpose of the scholarship is to provide financial support to those persons who wish to obtain additional education after the normal course of their education or vocational training has been interrupted for any reason.Brandi was the perfect fit. After graduating from Greenfield-Central in 2000, she attended IUPUI from 2000-2002 and Ivy Tech from 2010-2011. Brandi enrolled in Hancock Regional Hospital’s Technologist Program. The demanding program combines four days of clinical work with another day of class time plus homework. Dedicating Monday through Friday, from 8-4, to her educational endeavor means having no time for the young mother to raise a child and work for pay. Thankful to Promote Education“It felt like my favorite pair of shoes, the perfect fit.” Just like her favorite shoes, Kathryn Brock seems to find the same perfect fit in her life with music.
