"I am indeed grateful for the Hormel Scholarship. I have successfully completed the Dietary Management Course at Central Piedmont Community College on May 1, 2018, and passed the national credentialing exam and am now a CDM, CFPP! This certification has great impact on me and my family life. My passion and enthusiasm in this field of study will allow me to contribute positively to its growth and success. Thanks to NFEF and Hormel Health Labs for this great opportunity."
