Emily Joynt, a Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing senior student, was selected as the inaugural recipient of the Lisa Marie Henderson Memorial Scholarship.  This year’s award of $1,000 will go toward school expenses.

This endowment was initiated by Mr. Wade Henderson, Lisa’s husband, who raised over $25,000 since 2020. The scholarship we will be awarded annually for the Fall Semester to a senior student in Beebe Healthcare’s Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing.

Lisa Henderson passionately worked with oncology patients for her entire 25-year career. The first 17 years she worked in private practice in Frederick, Maryland, and the last eight years with Beebe Healthcare’s Tunnell Cancer Center.

She was the Nurse Manager of the Cancer Center her final three years.  She gained respect within the Beebe organization, both with management as well as her nursing staff and her oncology doctors. But most of all, she was always an advocate for the patient and their experience. It was her hope that this scholarship would assist students eager to pursue a nursing career in oncology.

Emily, a Lewes resident, was selected by the N102 team and then approved by the Student Services Committee. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in cell and molecular biology. Her personal experience losing a loved one to cancer has driven her desire to work in the oncology field.
