I’m pleased to announce that the Florence M. Grous Scholarship Memorial Fund has raised $8,220 to date. Amazing! Thank you to everyone who has donated! The Scholarship will be awarded annually to a Rutgers nursing student nearing the end of their studies.
I’m also very pleased to announce that on Friday, May 16, 2014, the very first Scholar will be presented with this year’s award. There will be a small ceremony with the the Scholar, the Dean of Nursing, Nursing Administration and Staff, and our entire family. Dad, Carolyn, Alice, Jerry and I are all looking forward to attending at the Rutgers campus in Newark NJ. We will meet the Scholar and have a tour of the nursing facility.
This scholarship will be awarded annually. If you are looking for a great place to donate your tax refund, please consider adding to the amount raised so far so that we can keep the scholarship going for many years to come. If available, matching funds really help too. We hope to raise at least $50,000 over time in order to have it endowed. Details on how to donate are in a prior posting, or contact one of us.
