The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee has awarded three $500 scholarships to students from Farm Bureau member families who are pursuing a career in nursing.
The scholarships were awarded to Jadin Wilkinson of Buffalo, Victoria Geralds of Mangum and Lavender Cisneros of Watonga.
“Our Women’s Leadership committee is proud to help these three Farm Bureau members earn their nursing degrees,” said Mignon Bolay, OKFB WLC chair. “Our Farm Bureau members understand how important it is to have access to quality healthcare for all Oklahomans, and we are proud of our members who serve their fellow Oklahomans in clinics and hospitals around our state.”
Wilkinson is a Harper County Farm Bureau member studying at Northwestern Oklahoma State University working toward a career as a registered nurse. Geralds is a Greer County Farm Bureau member studying at Oral Roberts University with plans to work in intensive care. Cisneros is a Blaine County Farm Bureau member studying nursing at the University of Central Oklahoma with plans to become a registered nurse to work as a nurse practitioner.
The OKFB WLC provides their annual nurse’s training scholarships to help Farm Bureau members complete their education in nursing so they can provide much-needed healthcare services to fellow Oklahomans. Applicants must be enrolled half-time or more in a nurse’s training program at an accredited college, university, technical school or trade school.
