Peters and Hawkins scholarships help nursing students at Community

Nine nursing students at Community Medical Centers received scholarships through the Alice A. Peters and Marilyn Hawkins Nursing Scholarship Programs. The 2010 recipients were honored in front of family, friends and colleagues at an awards ceremony at Community Regional Medical Center.

The Alice A. Peters Nursing Scholarship Fund is designed to lessen the financial burden and help nursing students complete their studies on schedule.

The Marilyn Hawkins Nursing Scholarship Program honors and recognizes clinical professionals who have demonstrated excellence in their profession, a commitment to realizing their own potential and overall leadership. These scholarships are awarded to nursing students who are employees of Community Medical Centers.
