January 10, 2023 — The Statewide Nurses Committee introduced its first annual scholarship at the PEF Convention in Oct. 2022. All nurse delegates were asked to bring proof they had attended an education program over the last three years for consideration. Money for the scholarship was set aside before the pandemic. This year’s winners were Christina Haggarty, Sara-Jean Leigh, Jared Majeed, and Margaret Dobbins. The SWNC hopes to continue the scholarship next year. They raised more than $1,200 by raffling baskets at Convention.
