Meet MSHF Scholarship Recipient Yolanda Thomas

Yolanda is currently studying mental health counseling at Capella University. She was drawn to the program because she wants to help all individuals and those who suffer from more severe mental illness which she plans to do after completing her program.

Outside of school, Yolanda enjoys reading, crocheting and listening to music, and she says best study tip she’s picked up while pursuing her education is time management. Of her MSHF scholarship, she says it “helped me to achieve my goals as I had no more funding available to complete this degree. And while I would have completed the degree, it certainly would have taken me a longer time frame to completion. I’m extremely grateful!”
