The students are Andre’ King and Clayton Thomas of Paris, Makayla Stringer of Detroit, and Brandy Seagraves and Wendy Springfield of Sulphur Springs.
“Nursing is an important profession; it is a great profession and we’re happy to support it,” said Lodge Treasurer Larry Slagle. He added that everyone needs the services these students will provide after graduation.
“Nursing school in itself is stressful, but when students are also concerned about finances and trying to work it adds to the stress level,” said PJC Director of Nursing Stephanie Parker. “Receiving a scholarship eases the financial burden and allows students to concentrate on being a student. The Roan Oak Masonic Lodge provides scholarships each year to our nursing students and we are thankful for their generosity and continued support.”
