Graduating from high school in her hometown of Mountain Home, Nicole Bolt worked hard to “emphasize academic excellence, athletic participation and good citizenship.” Striving to maintain good grades while pursuing her athletic interests, she also volunteered her time with the community.

When it came time to consider higher education, she eagerly chose the University of Arkansas. Not only is she an avid Razorback fan, but she appreciates the academic reputation of the school and looks forward to following in the footsteps of her mother, an alumna, and her brother, who is currently a junior at the U of A.

“I truly appreciate being awarded the Razorback Generation Scholarship for $2,500 a year. This generous scholarship will make a great difference in my academic career beginning this fall. This scholarship will also make a huge impact financially for my family as it has made my attendance at the U of A possible,” she said.

Eager to begin the next phase of her life at the U of A, Bolt plans to pursue a degree in nursing, with the hopes of one day becoming a nurse practitioner or a nurse anesthetist. While the medical field requires much academic dedication, she intends to make time for other activities, including the opportunity to participate in the Greek system, a student ministry organization and intramural sports.

“I am honored to have been awarded the Razorback Generation Scholarship, and I promise that I will work very hard to achieve academic excellence as I pursue my degree at the University of Arkansas.”
