Nurse Alumnus Scholarships Awarded
to 29 University Nurses

Augusta, Ga. – Twenty-nine University Hospital nurses each received $1,000 scholarships during the annual Nurse Alumnus Scholarship Luncheon on Dec. 14, 2011.

The scholarships, which are awarded through University Health Care Foundation’s Nurse Alumnae Endowment, will be used to help further the education of the recipients.

In June, University Health Care Foundation received a generous $17,000 donation from the estate of former University Hospital Nurse Nettie Hillmon, who passed away in 2009 at the age of 103.

"Mrs. Hillmon wanted to support University Hospital and nursing education to help continue University's long tradition of having the best nurses in the region," explained Laurie Ott, President of University Health Care Foundation.
