Nicole Greer, Master of Education Scholarship Winner

Meet Jonelle Nicole Greer, Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction

I’m incredibly grateful to have an opportunity to pursue a graduate degree with very few out-of-pocket expenses. Out of many applicants, I was chosen, and that means a great deal to me. Consequently, I’ve chosen to pay it forward by volunteering as a GED reading instructor at a local learning center for women. - J. Nicole Greer, Concordia’s full scholarship winner
