ATC has one millionth HOPE grant student

January 26, 2007

Albany-  An Albany Tech student is recognized by Governor Sonny Perdue as the one millionth HOPE Grant recipient. 

Marilyn Findley is a nursing student at Albany Technical College.  Findley has a degree in business office technology in the medical field, but felt nursing might be a better fit for her.  She said without her HOPE Grant, she wouldn't be to complete the program. 

"If it wasn't for the HOPE Grant then I wouldn't be able to pursue my career in nursing because it was HOPE that I had the financial ability to come back to Albany Tech to pursue it," said Marilyn Findley, Albany Tech Nursing Student. 

Findley is also a National Technical Honor Society member and will graduate in April. Perdue has proposed a HOPE Chest amendment that would permanently direct all lottery funds toward the HOPE program.
