2022 Manning Scholarship Award Recipient

"I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Breathe New Hampshire for selecting me as the recipient of the Mary C. Manning Scholarship. I do not  take my health for granted, and avoid using any tobacco or vaping products. I encourage my friends to quit; and try to model that you don't need to vape to be popular, or to have fun."

- Katherine, Plymouth State University Nursing Major
