STEP & ACE Students Receive EWI Scholarship

NNU is proud to announce that students Ana Marie Pedroza and Tiffany Ryan have each been awarded Adult Students in Scholastic Transition (ASIST) scholarships. The women were selected as recipients by the Boise chapter of Executive Women International (EWI). The award is made available to adults pursuing educational opportunities who are facing economic, social, or physical challenges. Pedroza and Ryan were selected based on their dedication to their families and their determination to continue pursuing their goals.

Pedroza is an involved mother of three employed by the Mountain Home School District. Her goal is to become a teacher. With the support of her family, she recently decided to go back to school. She is now working full time and attending NNU’s accelerated teaching degree program (ACE). The reason for her return to school, says Pedroza, is “To help all children to have the developmentally appropriate programs necessary for their success.” This desire stems from her own early educational experiences as the daughter of a migrant worker.

Ryan is also the mother of three. She is employed by both Nampa Christian Schools and NNU. In the evenings she attends classes through NNU’s accelerated business degree program (STEP). When discussing her decision to be a full-time employee and student, Ryan said “One of the biggest motivations for me is to be able to pursue advanced opportunities for employment so I am able to help my oldest son and my daughter to attend college.” Her wish for her children is derived from the struggles she has faced in finding employment without a bachelors degree.

Congratulations, Ana and Tiffany! We wish them the best as they work toward completing their admirable goals.
