2023 Recipient
CRNA (nurse anesthetist)
Utah Tech University in St. George, Utah

I received your scholarship this spring and it has been so helpful to me and my studies here at Utah Tech University! My career plan is to become a CRNA (nurse anesthetist) and my next step is to get into the nursing  program here. I am down to only one general class left (the amazing thing about being able to take college courses in high school)! My favorite classes this semester have been human biology and foundations of nutrition. I have learned so much about the human body and how different things affect it. I love the classes for my major so much and I can't wait to take more! I want to thank the Cody Medical Foundation again for choosing me as a recipient of your scholarship because it has helped me immensely with my studies!

2023 Recipient
University of Wyoming in Laramie, Wyoming

I’m currently a pre-med student at the University of Wyoming. I started college this fall with the help from
your scholarship. I love to get outside and see what the beautiful State of Wyoming has to offer, whether
it’s backpacking, fishing, hunting, or good ol’ hiking, I love it all! As Laramie has gotten colder, I have moved
to indoor activities and studying while hanging out with my roommate and other friends.

Forensic Pathologist
Willamette University in Salem, Oregon

My time at Willamette University has been great! My classes are challenging, but I am learning so much. I have had so much fun exploring Oregon and I’m getting used to the rainy fall weather. I cannot express how grateful I am that I have gotten this experience and it would not have been possible without the COE Scholarship. Thank you for helping me make my dream come true!

2023 Recipient
Nurse Practitioner
Pima Community College, Tucson, Arizona

I have wanted to go into medicine since I was a kid. I chose to study medicine because I enjoy helping people. So far I’m loving classes! I’m really enjoying my biology and psychology classes. Our campus is small, but it’s right down the street from the University of Arizona. So you get the feel of a big school as well. I have spent lots of time around
Tucson trying different restaurants and going to different events and football games! I’m also loving the warm weather while it’s snowing back home.
