University of Arizona sophomore Chelsea Lovitt was awarded a scholarship by the Daughters of the American Revolution.

A Buckeye resident, Lovitt is studying pre-nursing and plans to work with oncology patients.

She was chosen as this year’s recipient because of her school achievements and her essay on “How to Be an American.”

“Each day (as an American) brings new challenges although as long as we stand together, Americans, hand in hand, there is nothing this great country cannot face,” she wrote.

Lovitt attended Ruth Fisher and Westpark elementary schools in Tonopah and Buckeye, respectively. While a student at Youngker High School, she was active in the National Honor Society and HOSA, an international student organization recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Health Science Education (HSE) Division of ACTE.

She was a sports medicine intern and was part of P.A.I.N., a club for nursing majors. She played varsity softball, for which she was a captain for two years.
