Run for the Nurses
Join the School of Nursing and Health Sciences on April 13th, 2013 for a 1 mile fun walk/run, 5K run, and ½ marathon to assist in the future education of nurses through scholarships at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College
Lisa Purvis Allison began the nursing program at ABAC as a single parent of two children following the accidental death of her husband. While completing the last year of the program, she was diagnosed with colon cancer. She was an outstanding student who personified the caring and compassionate nature of nursing. Upon graduation she successfully passed her state board exam and was licensed as a registered nurse. The profession of nursing was not blessed to see her work in health care as she lost her battle with cancer shortly after graduation. The Lisa Purvis Allison Scholarship Fund was developed to honor Lisa and assist other aspiring students to fulfill their dream of becoming a registered nurse at ABAC. The scholarship is awarded twice a year to a nursing student meeting stated criteria to assist with final semester expenses. Nursing faculty and the family of Ms. Allison are involved in the selection process.
