EKU McNair Scholar Doing Her Part to Protect America's Most Vulnerable

Dyamond Harrison - community hero!

EKU McNair scholar Dyamond Harrison is doing her part to protect America’s most vulnerable population. 

A junior biomedical sciences major, Dyamond is a state registered nurse’s aid (SRNA) working at the Berea Health and Rehabilitation Center.  She has been working at the center for six months and was on the job when COVID-19 hit the United States. 

Dyamond says, “I find comfort in the fact that I’m doing my part as a health care worker and protecting seniors who are most vulnerable at this time. I love my job and know I am fulfilling a purpose doing what I do.”

On behalf of McNair scholars, university faculty and staff members, and everyone worried about their well-being and the care and safety of their loved ones, we say THANK YOU, DYAMOND! 

Dyamond is risking her wellbeing to hit the front lines to do what is needed to serve our vulnerable seniors.  Dyamond is a shining light of hope and a fine example of selfless service.  Dyamond is a model McNair scholar and is one of America’s front-line heroes!
