Jordan Cannon, a nursing student at Delaware Technical Community College, has been named a 2021 New Century Transfer Scholar and will receive a $2,250 scholarship.

New Century Transfer Scholars are selected based on their academic accomplishments, leadership, activities and how they extend their intellectual talents beyond the classroom.

More than 2,000 students were nominated from more than 1,200 college campuses across the country. Only one New Century Transfer Scholar is selected from each state.

Cannon will graduate in May 2022, and she says her daughter is her inspiration to continue her education in nursing. She would like to work in a post-partum, post-surgical or trauma unit in a hospital on her way to becoming a nurse practitioner.

 

“Throughout my journey here at Delaware Technical Community college, I have had the chance to show my daughter courage, perseverance and determination,” said Cannon.

The program is sponsored by The Coca-Cola Foundation, the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation, Phi Theta Kappa and the American Association of Community Colleges.

 “Scholarship programs like this are integral for creating opportunities for two-year college students to succeed and for putting college completion within reach,” aid Phi Theta Kappa CEO Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner.

“I am overcome with gratitude and satisfaction in knowing that my success is just as much in the journey as it is in the outcome,” Cannon said. “It truly has been such a joyous time for my family and I am thankful for this opportunity.”
