The Modesto Junior College Nursing Alumni Association invites the community to the 12th annual nursing scholarships fundraising dinner on Thursday, May 16, 2019 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Mary Stuart Rogers Student Center West Campus, located at 2201 Blue Gum Ave in Modesto.
The theme is "Celebrating Nurses in our Community" and a highlight of the event is recognizing and honoring outstanding nurses who serve in the local area.
“This fun-filled, inspirational event is open to everyone,” said Bonnie Costello, MJC professor emeritus of nursing. “The registered nurses being honored are regarded as role models in the nursing profession. Anyone can nominate a nurse for this honor whose dedication, kindness and generosity are remarkable and inspiring.”
Two $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to current nursing students during the evening. The scholarships are given in honor of Lupe Perez, who was a graduate of MJC’s first nursing class in 1965. He worked locally as a nurse for many years and was a charter member and president of the Nursing Alumni Association.
Letters nominating area nurses for an award should be sent by May 2 to Nursing Alumni Association, Modesto Junior College, 435 College Avenue, Modesto, CA 95350.
The dinner cost is $30 for adults and $10 for children under 12 years of age. All funds raised for the evening are used to support scholarships and resources for nursing students.
