1st Annual Aunt Kim Scholarship
About the Scholarship
Candice was passionate about education. Although she passed away shortly before obtaining her degree in Psychology from Houston Tillison College, she often worked two jobs while raising and supporting her family. In 2002, Candice completed a training program through Memorial-Herman Hospital where she completed her post secondary non-degree award as a Surgical Technician. This same year, she completed a program through First Metropolitan Church as a Christian Counselor. Up until a month before her passing, Candice would commute weekly from Houston to Austin pursuing her dreams of obtaining her college degree. It is through this unbridled passion and perseverance for the pursuit of a higher education that we present this namesake scholarship in honor of Candice Cade Mitchell!
