Hailey Handerhan ’19

Novartis Science Scholarship
Georgian Court University
Major: Biology

Hailey Handerhan ’19 is a first-generation college student who came to GCU for its medical imaging program, but stayed even after she decided to change majors because of the “amazing” professors and strong academics. This scholarship is especially important to Hailey because she is funding her own education, so “every bit really counts.” She hopes to go to medical school and wants to make an impact in her community. “To me, success is not about your standing or your money,” she said. “It’s more about the person you are and the character you have. Experiences are the most rewarding things in life.”
