2019 Marks a 15th Anniversary
It is with the utmost pride that I join my fellow alums in celebrating 15 years as consortium members of the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing Alumni Association. Since 2004, Church Home Alumni have worked to grow the Freda Creutzburg Scholarship that benefits Johns Hopkins students, and have thoroughly enjoyed the joint celebration of annual Alumni Weekend celebrations. To be sure,
we look forward to another 15 years.
Distinguished Alumni Award
Having received an overwhelming number of nominations, it was an obvious choice to award the Second Annual Church Home & Hospital School of Nursing Distinguished Alumni Award to Kathleen Milholland Hunter, PhD, RN-BC, CNE, FAAN, of the Class of 1969. Dr. Hunter will receive the award posthumously. In her 40-year career, Dr. Hunter, recently named a “Visionary Pioneer,” was a true expert in the specialty of informatics and research.
Reunion Weekend Raffle a Grand Slam
Each year a raffle is held at the Saturday Reunion Brunch, and lucky winners have enjoyed their wine, chocolates, and more. This year, it was very exciting to have two handmade quilts to raffle off, graciously donated by Barbara Zelenka Spink ’69. Barbara is a nationally recognized quilter and won 1st and 2nd prize at the State Fair this year. Thank you, Barb!
