Northland Community & Technical College is proud to announce that Stacy Johnston is the recipient of the Spring 2012 Dr. Russell O. and Inez Sather Nursing Scholarship.
The Dr. Russell O. and Inez Sather Nursing Scholarship has been established from the Dr. Russell O. and Inez Sather Trust. Two scholarships are awarded annually to individuals pursuing Practical Nursing with the Practical Nursing Program of the Northland Community and Technical College, East Grand Forks campus, formerly known as the Agassiz Valley School of Practical Nursing.
“We are passionate about this scholarship, and after carefully interviewing the candidates, the award is presented to an individual that will be a "compassionate, critically thinking nurse and ideally be a positive addition to the field of healthcare,” mentioned scholarship committee member Daphne Sobolik.
The Dr. Sather scholarship is open to all students who have met the following qualifications: Enrollment in Northland’s Practical Nursing program with 12 credits completed and a cumulative GPA of 3.0, completed application form, and an interview with scholarship committee members. Preference will be given to applicants with established residency in Polk, Red Lake, Marshall, Mahnomen, Clearwater, Pennington, and Norman counties in Minnesota.
“In these challenging economic times, it is gratifying to know that due to Dr. Sather’s foresight, deserving NCTC Practical Nursing students are able to attend school,” concluded Sobolik.
