MHM-funded scholarship helps address the professional shortage in South Texas

Erica is the proud recipient of the George Wray & Col. Vane Hugo Scholarship funded by MHM. As a first-generation college student, Erica believes without the financial support the scholarship provided her she wouldn’t have been able to put in the hours necessary to succeed. “I certainly wouldn’t have been able to finish graduate school…,” explains Erica.

The scholarship, honoring George Wray and Col. Vane Hugo, has helped pay for seven years of Erica’s education.

Erica has since graduated with her Master of Science in nursing degree and is working as a nurse practitioner providing mental health care to the underserved in rural areas of South Texas.
