GC Nursing Students Benefit from Scholarship Donation

GC Nursing Students Benefit from Scholarship Donation

A long-time member of the Georgia College Foundation Board of Trustees has donated funds to endow the Dr. Samuel and Mrs. Ellen S. Goodrich Scholarship for nursing.

“I feel that an education is one of the most important things that you can give,” said Mrs. Ellen Goodrich, a former nursing faculty member at Georgia College. “I have been so impressed with the students who come to Georgia College and just love it here.  I want this scholarship to provide an incentive and a reward for students who want to learn and who love what they are learning.”

Undergraduate and graduate nursing students will be eligible for the scholarship. Mrs. Goodrich also expressed appreciation for the faculty who “take such a personal interest in the success of these students. Students tell me how much they really care.”
