My name is Megan and I will start in the fall pursuing a degree to become a dental hygienist. I have been a dental assistant for the past four years. Being able to maintain your life, living expenses, work, and college to top it off can be strenuous. My goal is to become more successful with my degree and a better understanding of oral health care to improve people's quality of life. Dental school is time-consuming and having help to pay tuition will elevate how many hours I have to work and use that time to focus on my studies.

I am a high school senior and currently work at Food City in Chattanooga, TN. I am searching for needed scholarship funds to assist me in financing a college education. My parents are divorced and I am now 18 and no longer will receive any support from my biological father. I would like to accomplish my goals on my own as much as possible. I currently have a 3.9 GPA, scored 27 on my ACT and have taken 2 dual enrollment and 2 AP classes this year as a senior. Please consider me.
