The 2020-2021 Florence County Medical Society & Alliance Scholarship recipient is Denise Wiggins, a Junior nursing student at Francis Marion University. She is scheduled to graduate in December, 2021.
When asked why she decided on Nursing, Denise stated that when she was younger, she helped take care of her “Nana and Pa”. Her desire to be a patient advocate and to be part of a team that assists patients with their recovery process grew from the assistance she gave her grandparents. Denise plans are to stay in Florence for a few years after she graduates, working for a local hospital to gain experience as a nurse. She then would like to travel, her passion, around the country and the world.
This scholarship is awarded to a full- time junior or senior student enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts Nursing program or a pre-medical student at Francis Marion University. The recipient must be a resident of Florence County and maintain a 3.0 GPA or higher.
