Hospital scholarship goes to nursing student

A Hamilton High School graduate was selected to receive the annual Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital scholarship from the hospital and medical staff.

Class of 2015 valedictorian and basketball star Kali Hayes Humphrey changed her career path from becoming a teacher, gave up a full ride to Brigham Young University in Utah and is studying nursing at Montana State University.

Humphrey said the change after a year of teacher training was motivated by her experience at the hospital where she had knee surgery.

“I had ACL surgery in the middle of my third semester at school. The medical professionals helped me through this difficult time. It was about this time that I decided to change my major to nursing,” Humphrey said. “The nurses took such good care of me that I wanted to be a nurse after that. They just helped me feel calm and that everything was fine even though I was about to have a big surgery and not be able to walk for a while.”

She realized she loved medical science.

Rather than becoming a teacher, like two of her sisters, she said, “I decided my personality and interests best fit becoming the kind of caring, medical professional who helped me through all of my surgeries.”
