In June, SR Education Group awarded a $2,000 Mom Scholarship to Nicole Schmidt. Nicole is a 23-year-old single mother of two and has no outside sources of financial support. She lives in Carey, Ohio, and is earning her certificate in medical billing and coding from Marion Technical College. Nicole recognized that she needed additional education in order to accomplish her career goals. She enrolled in the medical billing and coding program at Marion Technical College in the hopes of earning a position at a physician’s office. Medical billing and coding grabbed Nicole’s interest after she looked through some of the coursework her mother was taking; it appealed to her strong sense of organization and offered her the opportunity to work in an industry where she felt she could make a positive impact.
