TERRE HAUTE — Lenise Kohlway of Spencer was presented with the WorkOne Achievement Award last week for overcoming several employment barriers and pursuing a better life for herself. She received the award this week in a ceremony at the Indiana Statehouse.

 Kohlway was a recent graduate from Union High School and a single parent when she visited her local WorkOne for assistance in pursuing a career as a registered nurse, but she did not have the financial means or support to achieve this degree.

At WorkOne, Kohlway received job search assistance, counseling and career planning, financial aid guidance and help navigating social service agencies.

Kohlway enlisted in an occupational skills training program through WorkOne and received financial assistance for tuition and books. Using these services, Kohlway was able to get her Certified Nursing Aid license. Soon after, she graduated with an associate’s degree in nursing and later acquired her registered nurse license.

Kohlway is working at Union Hospital in Terre Haute. She recently received the Wabash Valley Community Foundation scholarship award, which she plans on using to earn her bachelor’s degree in nursing.
