Tara Foster of Delta Upsilon at Marshall University does not give up dream of being a flight nurse

Tara Foster, the Wellness Chairman of the Delta Upsilon Chapter at Marshall University, was planning to help people. She was going to do that by being an active firefighter and EMT, as a lifeguard at Myrtle Beach as part of thei emergency response team there, and by joining the National Guard to become a flight nurse.

However, none of those things happened for Tara in that order after she tore her anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) playing for Delta Zeta in the Greek Week flag football tournament. The only thing that stopped Tara from continuing to play was the fact that her knee would no longer hold her weight. The Army is still honoring her six-year enlistment, but she was not able to officially ship out for basic training until her knee healed completely.

Tara stayed positive, though, saying "This injury will help me be a better nurse." She continued her nursing degree and continued to focus on fixing her knee and her dream of being a flight nurse.
