Each year, College Admissions Assistance (CAA) of Arlington, Texas, awards multiple scholarships to graduating high school students in its program. Brownsville student Jennifer Jefferson is this year’s recipient of the CAA Class of 2010 Scholarship of $500. She writes, “Your program helped me prepare for college by helping me narrow down my selection of schools, and with the college entrance exams [SAT & ACT]. Overall, the program was extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend it to my friends.” Jennifer was accepted at both University of Tampa, and University of Texas at Brownsville. She’ll be majoring in nursing at UT Brownsville. She likes the fact that she will be close to her family while attending college.

Jennifer’s career choice was made early—from the time she was seven years old, to be exact. Her grandparents had medical issues, and she would accompany them on their many trips to the doctor’s office. She liked the way the office nurse interacted with her grandparents, and was fascinated by the medical procedures. As her grandfather’s diabetes became more severe, she helped to nurse and care for him. Now she is looking forward to graduating with a degree in nursing, and going straight to work once she earns her R.N. degree.

Jennifer’s hobbies include taking care of her pets, Roxie the Lab and a couple of cats. She is also a music aficionado, and was in Band throughout middle school and in her freshman year of high school. Everyone at CAA is extremely proud of Jennifer and its entire high school graduating class of 2010.
