Kearston Cox, 18-year-old granddaughter of Kim and Bob Ridgway of Pocomoke City, was presented a $1,000 scholarship from Hartley Hall Nursing & Rehabilitation Center.
Cox, a 2018 graduate of Pocomoke High School, plans to attend Wor-Wic Community College in the fall and enter into the LPN program.
Each year an anonymous donor gives Hartley Hall $1,000 for a graduate who plans to pursue the nursing field.
Cox recently attended Worcester County Technical School and received her nursing assistant certification.
“From a very young age I have always known I wanted to be a nurse,” she said.
