REAL STUDENTS, REAL STORIES

Real Stories - Wendy BollinoThis week, HawkTalk features Wendy Bollino from the Class of Spring 2024 and student speaker for the School of Science and Health:

"For some of us, our paths through life are straight lines. Not mine—I zigzagged, and even did some loop-dee-loops before I was able to get to this stage. But perseverance and resilience pay off. I am a proud, 40-year-old wife, mother, and now, a newly graduated nurse.”
