Caitlin M. O'Connor, BSN 2013 William Jewell College
I am the proud parent of a beautiful, bouncing, college graduate!
My daughter is a true testament to the words of Eleanor Roosevelt, "You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You're able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do."
Caitlin has shown her strength, determination and courage the last 4 years as she faced liver failure and a rigorous nursing program. I am confident that she will make a difference in the lives of many and will be a caring, empathetic, and wonderful nurse.
