Scholarship awarded to NCHS senior
The Boice-Willis Clinic is pleased to announce that Maggie "Nikki" Leonard, a senior at Nash Central High School, has been awarded the 2007 "Anne McBride Smith Memorial Scholarship".

Nikki graduated with a grade point average of over 3.8 and is ranked in the upper 10% of her class. In addition to her many scholastic accomplishments, Nikki was very active in several school clubs and in her senior year, was awarded the USAA National Mathematics Award.

For the last four years, Nikki was also an active volunteer with Communities in Schools.

Nikki will be attending the University of North Carolina this fall with plans to attend medical school after graduation.

"I always knew I wanted my profession to be medical-based," states Nikki. "When I was two years old, I became very ill and the doctors saved my life. The stories my mother told me about the two weeks while I was hospitalized, has influenced my career decision to go into the neonatal field. I want to help save children just as the physicians save me when I was young."

The Boice-Willis Clinic "Anne McBride Smith Memorial Scholarship" is a 4-year $12,000 scholarship awarded to a senior who is interested in a science or health-related field. Nikki is the twelvth recipient of this scholarship.
