Opioid Epidemic Recovery Scholarship Winners

Cierra Price is 28, living in St. Louis, Missouri, with her husband and their two young daughters, ages 1 and 3. She is a full-time nursing student at the University of Missouri in St. Louis, and looks forward to graduation in 2022. Both of her parents were paramedics, and she wants to go into emergency medicineā€”hopefully as a flight nurseā€”and specialize in trauma.

ā€œBeing awarded this scholarship is so incredibly touching and validatingā€”of all the scholarships Iā€™ve applied for, the essay I wrote for this one was the most genuine and vulnerable of all. I think that it is so very admirable that this growing issue is being recognized by the Law Offices of Eisenberg & Associates, and Iā€™m honored that my voice on this matter stood out. My journey to recovery was a long and difficult one, and my being back in school wouldnā€™t have been an opportunity at all without my being sober today. Thank you again for this scholarship, I am deeply grateful, and I wish you all the very best in joining the worthy battle against this epidemic.ā€
