Kirkwood Student Jaymeson

“Nearing the end of high school, I figured out what I wanted to do with my life. I fell in love with the idea of being able to help people through the occupational therapy program. I’m so excited to begin this journey at Kirkwood and to begin to give back to my community. Being awarded a Kirkwood scholarship has inspired me to keep going with my future plans.”
