"We accept 40 students a year," said Dr. Kirk Nooks, GHC Marietta site director. "It's very competitive. We do have a relationship with WellStar, so that's where our nursing program in Marietta is located. This is addition to the nursing program in Heritage Hall up in Rome."

"Karen's application and essay about what the scholarship would mean to her stood out. It was not hard to agree on her as an awardee."

of six people who had to come together and agree on the 10 women to whom we would award scholarships this year," said Denise Billups, Emerge scholarship chairwoman.

But Bates said she refused to give up. The 1986 Walton High School graduate decided that she would not become a victim and feel sorry for herself. Instead, she took control of her life.

"I thought, 'I can't find myself in this position anymore,'" recalled Bates. "I've got to secure a career and not just have a job."

Bates, 42, ended what she called an abusive, 16 year marriage in 2004, leaving her to raise her children alone.

In March, Bates received a $5,000 scholarship from Emerge, a Norcross based nonprofit that supports women through scholarships. In the past decade it has provided $200,000 in scholarships to 50 women.

Bates said that juggling raising a family and school she said she maintained a 3.8 GPA would not be possible without the support of people such as her boyfriend, Bernard McClarin, whom she said has been by her side through the ups and downs.

"Karen is one of our shining examples of a student who did not let circumstances get in her way," he said.

However, as painful as her struggles have been, she has become a stronger person because of them, said Bates, who plans to eventually earn a master's degree in nursing.
