Several Clayton State University School of Nursing students were recently recognized with scholarship awards.
Colleen Walters, of Hampton, was awarded a $1000 scholarship from the Grady Graduate Nurses Minority Scholarship.
“This award helped to pay my tuition and book expenses this semester. I hope to work as a RN in a Metro-Atlanta hospital, serve in my community through volunteer work at the Henry County Pregnancy Resource Center and as a Diabetes Educator, and continue to study the Spanish language,” says Walters, who will graduate in spring 2012 with a BSN and a minor in Spanish.
Four, third semester nursing students were honored and received nursing scholarships at the 24th Annual Chi Eta Phi Scholarship Awards Luncheon; Carmel Philistin (Hampton), Jeanott Philistin (Hampton), Laura Pinkney, and Malivone Signa. All are expected to graduate in 2012.
