Alyse Noll, a five-year co-op student from Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, will be graduating in 2021 from Drexel University. She sees herself working in the neonatal intensive care unit at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and then going back to school to pursue her dream of becoming a nurse practitioner. She will use the scholarship from the William and Theresa M. Rubert Memorial Scholarship Trust to pursue those dreams.
Nikki Cannon is a junior who chose nursing because of her personal experience with her grandfather who spent the last few years of his life in and out of the hospital.

She is a member of the phi sigma sigma sorority on campus and serves on their executive board.

Julie Kim is a junior nursing student who is currently working on the Oncology-Liquid Tumors unit at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania for her second co-op.
