Career Step Announces Winner of Video Scholarship Contest for Moms Returning to School

The scholarship awards Ms. Mazanet $2,000, which she will put toward her tuition in the Dental Hygiene program at Madison College.
“I am a mother of two young children who keep me motivated and inspired,” said Ms. Mazanet. “I also work part time to help support my family and my academic goals. My goal is to support my family as a Registered Dental Hygienist who specializes in helping children to establish good oral hygiene habits while they are young. This award will help make that dream a possibility for me!”
Ms. Mazanet is attending Madison College as a full time dental hygiene student. She currently has a 3.4 grade point average and will begin her second year in the program in fall 2016.
