Alumni Banquet 2014

The Dwight Schar College of Nursing Alumni Association held their annual banquet on September 26, 2014, at the Brown Derby Roadhouse in Ontario.  There were approximately 60 alumni in attendance from Mansfield General Hospital School of 
 Nursing, MedCentral College of Nursing and AU Dwight Schar College of Nursing. 

The primary function of the nursing alumni association is to raise money for student scholarships and to support other activities of the nursing students.  This year the alumni were able to give three $1000 scholarships.  Winners were chosen by the alumni executive board based on an essay each applicant wrote answering the question "What are the qualities of a good nurse and how do you meet that criteria".  The students receiving the scholarships were Robyn Siburt, Justin McMahon and Charles Murray.
