Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing at Beebe Healthcare Presents Hopkinson Scholarship
Louise Jarmon Hopkinson was a 1932 graduate of Beebe School of Nursing, now the Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing at Beebe Healthcare. Louise served in the Army Nurse Corps and was a private duty nurse at Beebe Hospital for many years.
A generous bequest from the estate of Mrs. Hopkinson provides a merit scholarship award for the spring semester to senior and first-year nursing students based on their academic performance.
Beebe Medical Foundation manages and facilitates the awarding of the Louise Jarmon Hopkinson Scholarship.
This year’s recipients are:
Senior nurses: Cara Melendez of Millsboro; Chelsea Lehrer of Milton; and Rebecca Tillman of Newark, Del.
First-year nurses: Angela Baker of Georgetown; Kelly Staples of Laurel; and Kylie Powell of Rehoboth Beach.
