Hot Springs, Arkansas – National Park College (NPC) nursing student, Dulce Olivia Diaz was awarded a $1,500 scholarship from the Oaklawn Foundation for the spring semester. Diaz is 22 years old and the oldest of five children. She immigrated to the United States with her single mother as a small child. She is proud to be a first generation college student. Though her mother only completed a sixth grade education, she motivated Diaz to achieve her college degree. It is important to her that she set an example for her younger siblings and honor the sacrifices her mother made so she could pursue her dreams. Diaz has worked extremely hard to be successful in school while maintaining a full-time job to help with expenses. Once she began nursing school, the workload was too much and she had to reduce her work to part-time.
