The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee recently awarded three $500 scholarships to students pursuing a career in nursing from across the state.
The recipients of the WLC Nurse’s Training Scholarship are Trena Coursey of Sasakwa, Macall Myers of Norman and Madison Rowe of Tishomingo.
“The Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee is so pleased to be able to support these students as they pursue their degrees in nursing,” said Mignon Bolay, OKFB WLC chair. “Rural Oklahoma is always in need of quality medical professionals, and we’re hopeful these scholarships will help these outstanding students as they prepare to practice their profession in our rural communities.”
The scholarship is awarded to those who are attending an accredited college, university or trade school, and must be an Oklahoma Farm Bureau member or a member of a Farm Bureau-member family.
The WLC recognizes the significant role nurses play in ensuring a high quality of life for all Oklahomans, especially those in rural areas. With the cost of education rising yearly, the committee is proud to provide three students with scholarships to aid in their pursuit of a career in nursing.
