We are pleased to announce the winners of the 9th Annual Minority Nurse Magazine Scholarship Program awards. Ms. Mary Jo Coll, a nursing student at Drexel University, and Ms. Leah Peterson, a student at the University of California San Francisco School of Nursing, were both awarded scholarships of $1,000. Ms. Tiffany Copeland, a student at Molloy College Division of Nursing, and Ms. Jessy Johnson, a student at Mount Carmel College of Nursing, each received $500 scholarships.
Our four scholarship recipients are exceptional individuals, representing a variety of different backgrounds, interests and goals. Yet they are united by several key qualities: they are all outstanding scholars, have clearly demonstrated leadership ability and are strongly committed to “giving back” by volunteering actively within the communities they serve.
Watch for an article profiling our 2008 scholarship winners next year in the Spring 2009 issue of Minority Nurse. In the meantime, please join us in congratulating these talented students!
