Despite being in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the determination to continue pursuing a nursing degree at Penn State Mont Alto hasn't wavered for several student-athletes. Each is in various stages of the nursing program at Mont Alto, but for Drew Faust, Rachel Manikowski and Tyler Moreland they have gained a further motivation and inspiration to work within the field in such a time of need.

“I had the experience of interning at the Chambersburg Hospital in June and just being able to witness the nurses and nursing assistants get through the many troubles, it was eye-opening,” remarked junior men’s soccer player Drew Faust. “There is a certain mental toughness similar to being in athletic situations that I saw these frontline health care workers display.”
