Shayli Vigil, scholarship recipient

Shayli Vigil always wanted to learn how to do nails. But she needed some help to overcome the obstacles that blocked the path to her goals.

Shayli received her bachelor’s degree in Marriage and Family Studies last December from Brigham Young University-Idaho. Although she enjoyed her studies, Shayli’s lingering passion for nails was always in the back of her mind. “I love being creative and coming up with new designs,” Shayli says.

As a newlywed and recent college graduate, Shayli lacked the financial resources to return to school. Then, the Davis Commissioners Cup Scholarship provided Shayli the opportunity to pursue her dream.

Now Shayli has a new level of confidence. She’s excited that she can combine her new career with her future family as a Nail Technician, and she hopes she can share her confidence with others.

“When I do my nails, I feel beautiful, and I hope that ‘s how my clients feel, too."
