Leslee Forbes has been selected as the first Nevada State College (NSC) student to receive a scholarship from Lexus of Henderson.
Forbes, a senior at NSC, is working towards a business administration degree. She will use the scholarship to help offset the costs of tuition and books.
“I have had a few setbacks in my path to receiving my education, but I am currently working hard at finishing my degree,” Forbes stated in her application for the scholarship. “I am currently a full -time student, a full-time pharmacy technician, a wife, a mother, and a co-owner of a business. I am dedicated to finishing my degree and being a role model to my young daughter. I want to show her that education is important no matter what path she chooses to take in life.”
