A Davenport Central High School student got a very beneficial surprise today.
Daphne Cornish has won a $20,000 scholarship. It comes from the Davenport School District. It is awarded to a senior in the upper 10 percent of their class, who shows interest in the field of medicine.
Cornish says she wants to become a doctor and work in South America with Doctors Without Borders.
And that the scholarship will definitely help her dreams come true.
"It's a great honor," Cornish said. "This is really going to help me go to the school of my choice, Washington University in Saint Louis."
Cornish was worried about getting a scholarship to help pay for a deposit for Washington University. "Now, I think I'm going to be able to do that," Cornish said.
Cornish plans to major in Biology with a minor in Environmental Science.
