The Community Foundation for Crawford County is pleased to introduce Brooklin Brown, a 2022 recipient of one of the seven Arlene H. Smith Scholarship Fund awards, the Dorothy Sherer Flohr Scholarship Fund award, and one of the two Kiwanis Kahle-Wenner Scholarship awards.
Brooklin, the daughter of Dustin Brown and Kari Eulett, is a 2022 graduate of Wynford High School. She will be attending the North Central State College Crawford Success Center this fall and studying Nursing.
What inspired you to choose your intended major?
"I do not believe one particular person inspired me to enter this field. Overall, all nurses and medical personnel inspired me to do what I am doing, especially during the times of COVID-19. Watching everyone's lives change at such a rapid pace and observing the essential workers still doing their jobs during such trying times was inspiring to me. I do not wish for something like COVID to ever happen again, but if it does, I would be honored to be a part of the percent that is making an impact on people's lives."
What are your career and life goals after you graduate?
“My number one goal in life and my career is to be happy. If I am being completely honest, at 18 years old, I am not positive what that even looks like in the future for sure. I do know that I want to help people no matter what I do in life. I would not be the strong-willed and independent young woman I am today without the help of my strong community. Even when all the odds were against me, I still persevered, and that’s thanks to all the people who helped me. I hope that one day, I can have the impact on someone like so many from my community had on me. As long as I am happy and surrounded by life, I will consider my life to be a success.”
Congratulations and good luck in the future, Brooklin!
