Senior Student Lindsey Garcia Receives First Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing Scholarship
Newly established in 2017, the Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing Scholarship is awarded in the spring semester to a senior or first-year nursing student who has demonstrated the values of Beebe Healthcare, achieved academic success, and has financial need.
This scholarship has been generously funded by the Francis Baylis Jones loan, Ruth VanPelt Beebe scholarship, Nasser Saberi scholarship, and the Joanna Speicher scholarship monies and from other miscellaneous scholarship donations. Francis Baylis Jones was a Director at the School of Nursing in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Ruth VanPelt Beebe was a 1942 graduate of Beebe School of Nursing. Nasser Saberi was the brother of Dr. Mansour Saberi, and Joanna Speicher was a student at the Beebe School of Nursing.
The Margaret H. Rollins Scholarship is managed by Beebe Medical Foundation. We are proud and pleased to award the scholarship in the spring semester of 2017 to senior Lindsey Garcia from Newark, Delaware.
