Shawnda Hightower

Shawnda completed three semesters at Curry College before having to leave due to several family issues. Her goal is to become a nurse practitioner. She continues to work at Mass Hospital School as a nursing assistant, and hopes to return to Curry as she had a positive experience there. During her time away from college, Shawnda pursued her CNA and held a fulltime job to support herself and her young son. “Now is a good time for me to go back to school because my son is older.” Shawnda says. “I also have a support system behind me that will help in any way possible.”
