Brittney Casstevens from Jonesville is the 2012 recipient of the Hubert Lewis Phillips and Pearl Shermer Phillips Scholarship. She graduated from Starmount High School and attends Liberty University. She loves helping others and has served as a volunteer firefighter since she was in high school.
Brittney plans to devote her life to a service career by becoming a critical-care nurse. She turned down offers to play college soccer at several schools because the institutions did not offer nursing programs.
Brittney is a first-generation college student who is paying for college herself, so she is extremely grateful to receive this scholarship.
The Phillips Scholarship supports Yadkin County students pursuing a career in nursing. The Phillips Scholarship Fund is part of the Yadkin County Community Foundation family.
