For over 25 years, former US Congressman, Matt Salmon has been an advocate for the rights of individuals with physical and developmental disabilities, including those who have been clients of Hacienda HealthCare. To commemorate Hacienda’s 50th Year celebration in 2017, Mr. Salmon generously donated $25,000 to Hacienda. In honor of this gift, the Matt Salmon Nursing Education Scholarship was created for Hacienda employees who wish to further their education in the field of nursing. Nichole Nesbitt was the 2017-2018 recipient.
Thank you Mr. Salmon for your continued support of those entrusted to our care.
“Working for Hacienda is where my heart is because I know that every time I come into work I am making my clients’ lives the best that I can. Nursing is a career where the sky is the limit. There is always something more to advance my education. There is always a way that I can improve someone’s life. I do what I do because I love what I do. I hope to be able to help people understand that not everyone is the same but everyone is worthy of love, patience, and friendship.” ~ Nichole Nesbitt
