Christina Santos


Gillette College Foundation’s Scholar Spotlight!

Meet Christina Santos, recipient of three Gillette College Foundation Scholarships:  the Robert P. McCreery Memorial Scholarship, the Morel Nursing Scholarship, and the Boundless Opportunity Scholarship.

Christina is a veteran, a returning student after her second bachelor degree in nursing, and is a single mom.

The scholarships Christina has received have covered her tuition and fees, as well as her books, removing a huge financial burden.  Her words of advice to other students is, “Apply for scholarships!”

In her first semester of nursing, Christina feels she is already receiving a strong foundation for her future career.  Being in the nursing program and the fact that she was able to get her education locally are two of Christina’s favorite things about being a Gillette College student.

The Gillette College Foundation is proud to feature Christina Santos!
