HNS Senior of the Year wants to be Oncology Nurse

Abigail Emery

Congratulations to Abigail Emery for being named the Senior of the Year in the Health and Nursing Sciences program!

Abigail will attend La Roche University to become a Registered Nurse, earn her BSN and specialize in Oncology Nursing.

"My grandma was diagnosed with breast cancer last October, and I want to support other cancer patients during their battle with cancer so that they can defeat it, like she did," Abigail said.

Abigial enjoyed making new friends from other school districts while at the career center and learning skills and earning certificates that she can use in a job out of high school. The idea of combining academics with realistic hands-on learning while still in high school appealed to her.

"I appreciate how much Mrs. Fazio cares about all of us," Abigail said. "She is passionate about nursing and about helping all of us in our education and future careers, but she also cares about us on a personal level. I also appreciated how Mrs. Fazio would push us to meet our full potential and full abilities."

Abigail was involved with Deer Lakes' Yearbook and Beattie 360 Outdoors. She was also in National Honor Society and National Technical Honor Society.
