As the final cohort to graduate under Dean Patricia Davidson, the Class of 2021 decided to make a gift in her honor: funds toward a scholarship bearing her name.
We knew we wanted to give something back to the school,” says Katherine Sistrunk, a graduating member of the MSN (Entry into Nursing) Program. “And Dean Davidson has been such a beacon through good times and bad. We saw this gift as one way to help continue her legacy, and so the dean will know that she is loved and will be missed. Our hope is that future students who receive this scholarship will take time to look back and learn what Dean Davidson meant to the school and to nursing.”
The campaign was led by MSN students Sistrunk, Claryce De Loache, Arthur Plaszczymaka, and Leah Woienski, and Doctor of Nursing Practice students Yanka Campbell and Courtney Garry. Though the Class of 2021 may have concluded its fundraising, those who wish to contribute to this or other scholarship funds can do so at https://secure.jhu.edu/form/nursing.
