Couple Establishes New Scholarship for Nursing Students
Through a blended gift of direct and deferred support, their scholarship will significantly help the financial burdens of two students. One of the scholarships is directed towards a student from an Appalachian county and both are awarded on merit and financial need. By endowing their support, they will substantially impact not only the lives of their two scholarship recipients but also the future of the College of Nursing.
“Dewey and I both believe that we need great nurses, and that Kent State’s Nursing Program is one of the best in the country. Having graduated from KSU’s nursing program, I know that the program paves the way to a long and successful nursing career. I was lucky enough to have a grant and a loan during my years at KSU, so I realized long ago how much that can help a student continue his or her studies. We wanted to give back in some way, especially since both of my sons graduated from KSU as well. We could think of no better way than to support the KSU College of Nursing by giving money both for scholarships and an endowment, for all future generations.”
