Blue Coat


Katie Boalch is a senior student in the Tanner Health System School of Nursing studying to become a registered nurse. She is the first School of Nursing Student to be inducted into this organization. Katie has been recipient to several scholarships, including: the Elizabeth C. Boyd Presidential Scholarship and the Zell Miller Scholarship. She is the President of the Tanner Health System School of Nursing Class of 2018, a member of the Honors College and a member of the Alpha Lambda Delta Honors Society. In Katie’s words, “My heart grows with each person I touch and one of the things that makes me happiest is seeing others happy because of something I have been able to do for them. I have grown up always reminded that it is better to give than to receive, and that is exactly what I hope to do if selected to be a Blue Coat: give what I can to those who have made such an impact on my life and the lives of others.”
