Justin Strohschein

Gillette College Foundation’s Scholar Spotlight!

Meet Justin Strohschein recipient of the Boundless Opportunity Scholarship and the Richard M. Baker Scholarship through the Gillette College Foundation.

Justin is a “non-traditional” student from the area and is in his second semester of nursing.  He would eventually like to pursue his Bachelor’s degree.  In the next 10 years, he sees himself working in the medical field here in Wyoming.  The scholarships he has received have allowed him to not have to work as many hours and focus on his education.  It has also been an uplifting and humbling experience knowing someone else is willing to invest in his future.

In his time at Gillette College, Justin has grown in the area of teamwork.  He was very used to working independently prior to engaging in the nursing program.  He now has had the opportunity to rely on and work with several other people, as the medical field is “day-in and day-out, you have trust in your team.”

Justin encourages others to take a leap of faith.  “Whatever you want in life, go for it.  Don’t put it off until later.”

Justin’s favorite thing about being a Gillette College student is all of the great people he has met – to include students and faculty.

The Gillette College Foundation is proud to feature Justin Strohschein as our Scholar Spotlight!
