When Ginny Elrod was young she had an accident and needed X-rays. She remembers that the radiographer did all he could to make her more comfortable. Now she wants to do the same for other people who may be in the same situation.

After three years Elrod is on the verge of realizing her dreams. She will receive her associate's degree and be ready to tackle the demanding job of radiographer, in part because of a scholarship awarded to her through the WCC Foundation.

"I always knew that I wanted to go into the medical field and WCC had the best radiography program in the area," said Elrod.

A native of South Dakota, Elrod remembers being impressed with the focus on education in the Ann Arbor area. "The culture here is so different. The people here are upbeat, the environment is fast-paced and there are so many educational opportunities," said Elrod.

Elrod was awarded the Marion and Lou Trubshaw Scholarship, which covered her tuition for Fall and Winter semesters 2003-2004. "I jumped around the house and screamed when I found out that I had gotten it," said Elrod. "I didn't think that I was going to get anything."

The scholarship has made a huge impact on Elrod's educational goals. "This allows me to continue to be what I want to be. Without it I wouldn't be able to help the people I want to help."
