Ella Whitehead has decided to attend Radford University in the fall and will be majoring in nursing. That hasn’t always been the plan for Whitehead though. She originally wanted to go to Virginia Tech, but they didn’t offer nursing. Whitehead also had wanted to be a marine biologist for years before recently deciding to go down the nursing path. This choice was an easy one for Whitehead because she genuinely enjoys helping people and making sure they are taken care of.
