Kelsey Ehlers is originally from Tulsa, OK, but has lived in Sedalia and called it home for the majority of her life. She is a full-time student at State Fair Community College, a mother to three kiddos, and a wife to her awesome husband, Jeremiah.
Currently, she is pursuing an Associate of Applied Science in Health Information and Technology as well as a professional certification in Medical Coding. She is on track to graduate from SFCC December 2019 and from there her plan is to immediately start her career in Health Information Management full-time. On the side, she would like to work toward completing a CTR program online to become a licensed cancer tumor registrar. She is extremely grateful for the scholarship and the wonderful opportunity.
Jessica Hofheins is starting the nursing program at State Fair Community College in the fall of 2019. She is finally pursuing her desire to become a nurse and start a career for her future. She has been working a full-time job and taking part-time classes for the past couple of years to get to this point. She has worked as a retail store manager for the past ten years and realized she wanted more for herself and her family. She is excited to finally be in a career path that suits her desire to help others.
She plans on graduating from State Fair Community College in May of 2021. This two-year program will be tough, but she has a wonderful husband, Patrick, that will be her support system. She feels blessed to receive the SBW scholarship. The scholarship will contribute to her financial need and allow her to continue her goal to become an RN.
