Courtney Potts graduated Summa Cum Laude with an Associate of Applied Science degree in nursing in fall 2022.

During her time at Columbia State, she earned the Nursing Academic Discipline Award, as well as multiple nursing scholarships.

“Columbia State has nurtured me academically and assisted me in finding my true potential,” Potts said. “Before attending Columbia State, I was not aware of my own academic capabilities. It is amazing what can be accomplished when students are educated in an encouraging, positive environment. Having confidence instilled in me by professors and instructors changed my outlook on my own abilities. I have been so fortunate during my time here to have so many instructors and professors who truly want to see their students succeed.”
