POCAHONTAS, AR Jan. 15—The Leave a Legacy Scholarship has been awarded to 9 BRTC practical nursing students. The recipients are Jennifer Hart, Kaylee Meyers, Cynthia Johnson, Zachary Gertenbach, Carli Duke, Sara Ellington, Shannon Barnett, Lyndsey Johnson, and Shania Junyor. These recipients will be graduating in May 2021.
The Leave a Legacy Scholarship was founded by the May 2015 Practical Nursing class. The class had a goal to leave a legacy for future nursing students. They saw the financial hardship PN students faced during the last semester of the nursing program. The scholarship was founded to help students pay for NCLEX-PN exam fees and for the Arkansas State Board of Nursing licensure. Each graduating class has continued the legacy through fundraising activities.
