Motlow State Community College student Daphne Davenport, from McMinnville, has earned the Sam H. Odom Scholarship to use toward her nursing degree. The scholarship is awarded to one student at each of the Tennessee Board of Regents’ (TBR) 13 community colleges each year on behalf of the Sam H. Odom Foundation Trust and TBR.
“For as long as I can remember I have wanted to be in the medical field. My sister and I would dress up as nurses for career day at school when we were little,” said Davenport. “My path in high school was directed towards nursing and I was able to begin my career with NHC (National HealthCare Corporation) as a CNA during my senior year.”
Davenport attended TCAT and became a licensed practical nurse in 2014.
