Freda Creutzburg Scholar Graduates!
Congratulations to the latest recipient of the scholarship, Madeleine Barab. I had the pleasure of meeting her just before her December 2014 graduation. Madeleine is currently pursuing her nursing career in critical care nursing.
Reunion Weekend Coming!
It’s exciting to hear that the classes who will be celebrating 40th– and 50th-year milestones have started planning! If you were in the class of 1965 and will celebrate 50 Golden Years of nursing, contact Pat Kniffin Roberts. Pat is in the planning stages of making this a very special reunion for her class.
Members of the class of ’75 should look for a special Facebook page set up by Teri Lura Fink Bennett to connect for your 40th reunion. Teri reported that 10 classmates have already signed on to plan and make the celebration of their milestone also very special.
Donations to the Archives
Thank you to Kay Kaufman, ’63 for her recent donation of many historic medical and nursing books to the Alan Mason Chesney Medical Archives. I was in awe as I looked them over before I turned them in. Among the items was Miss Nash’s personal copy of Florence Nightingale’s Notes on Nursing! When you have time, this is an excellent place to spend a day to really soak up some nursing history and see the care our precious archives receive.
Help the Scholarship Grow
Maybe you will be getting a big tax refund??? Hope so, but even if you are not, always remember the scholarship when you are making charitable contributions. We have grown from $23,000 to over $245,000 in the 10 years we have given to support nursing education. Let’s continue to make a difference!
