Mallory Allen, Shelbyville, was recently awarded a grant of $2,000 from the P.E.O. Program for Continuing Education to provide funds to help her reach her educational goals.
In order to receive a grant from the P.C.E., a woman must be recommended by a P.E.O. chapter, have had at least 24 consecutive months as a non-student sometime in her adult life, be at least 24 consecutive months of completing her educational program and be enrolled in a technical or degree program which, at the conclusion, will lead to employment or job advancement.
Allen completed an Associate’s Degree in Arts and Science in 2013. She did not return to school until the fall of 2019, when she began working toward her Associate’s Degree in Nursing (ADN). She is on track to complete her RN Degree in December of this year, and she hopes to receive her Bachelor’s Degree in the future and also obtain SANE certification. Her dream has been to become a nurse and work in trauma and critical care. She knows her hard work now will provide a brighter future for her and her family. With the high demand for skilled nursing care, Mallory is very confident she will be able to reach her employment and career goals.
Following an interview by Chapter M P.C.E. Committee members, Donna Myers and Cathy Eagan, Chapter M members voted to sponsor Allen for the grant and were so proud when she received word of the award. Chapter M will continue to encourage and support her while she works toward her goals.
