Annual School of Nursing Saliba Scholarship Awarded to Student from Milton
Josephine “Josie” Melson, a Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing student, was selected as this year’s recipient of the Dr. And Mrs. Anis Saliba Scholarship. This year’s award of $1,000 will go toward school expenses.
This endowment was initiated by Dr. Anis and Susan Saliba in 2017 and is awarded annually for the fall semester to a senior student in Beebe Healthcare’s Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing. Dr. Saliba joined the Medical Staff at Beebe Healthcare as a surgeon in 1968, joined the Beebe Medical Center Board of Directors in 1988, and served as Chief of Staff for many years before retiring as a private practice surgeon in 2003. He now is an Emeritus Member of the Board of Directors and is an Honorary Member of the Medical Staff.
Josie, a Milton resident, was selected by the nursing instructors and then approved by the Student Services Committee. She graduated from Cape Henlopen High School in 2016. She shared that her great grandmother, who was born in 1921 and is known as the second Beebe baby, was a patient of Dr. Saliba.
