Sydney Ann Eyre
2013-2014 University Scholarship Winner
"The gift of this scholarship has humbled me and made me feel that my academic, community and personal achievements have been acknowledged. As a first-generation college student, higher education was a mystery and San Francisco State University has transformed it to a cascade of success. SFSU is shaping me into a commendable nurse, but most importantly, a compassionate person. I am genuinely grateful to have someone invest in my future for the first time. This scholarship will propel me toward my goal of becoming a Registered Nurse, and soon, a flight nurse. I hope one day to repay the favor to a young, struggling student who understands hard work, sacrifice, and the benefits of a higher education. Nursing is my passion and with the financial and communal support of SF State, I will reach my calling."
