With that, on Tuesday, Jan. 9, she received a scholarship from the Chapter JO of the International Sisterhood of P.E.O., in Neosho.
The scholarship was a Program for Continuing Education grant of $1,700 to advance her education.  The P.E.O. PCE scholarship provides need based grants to women in the United States and Canada whose education has been interrupted and who find it necessary to return to school to support themselves or their families.
"Well, I am not yet enrolled in nursing school, but I am doing my pre-reqs and I am going to use it toward a computer so I can do some online classes and still be able to work," she said. "And put it toward my tuition."
Heilig said she hopes to apply next spring to the Crowder College nursing here program here in Neosho.
"She seems like a very deserving young woman," said Gina Rodriguez, committee member for Program for Continuing Education (PCE).
Asked how pleased Heilig was in receiving this scholarship, she said, "I am very thrilled, I worked very hard to get this, I feel like, I spent a lot of time on it and I am very thankful for it as well."
The PEO Sisterhood, founded in 1869 at Iowa Wesleyan College, Mount Pleasant, Iowa is an international philanthropic educational organization which promotes increased educational opportunities for women. For more information on PEO Projects/Scholarships  visit peointernational.org
