Cade Baldwin of Stephens County, Cheyanne Gibbens of Okmulgee County and Logan Hukill of Caddo County each recently were awarded a scholarship to study nursing by the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee.
The annual scholarship program awards three $500 scholarships to students studying nursing at an accredited college, university, vo-tech or trade school. Applicants must be Oklahoma Farm Bureau members or a member of a Farm Bureau-member family.
“Our committee chooses to support nursing students because we see firsthand the need for qualified healthcare professionals in rural areas,” said Kitty Beavers, OKFB WLC chair. “We’re grateful to play a role in helping these future nurses succeed in their careers.”
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.
OKFB WLC promotes the importance of family and health, safety and crime prevention, state and national agricultural issues, voter awareness and citizenship, Agriculture in the Classroom and much more. To learn more about the WLC program, visit www.okfarmbureau.org/women.
