Run for the Nurses

DSC_0017

The School of Nursing and Health Sciences will hold the 3rd annual “Run for the Nurses” event on April 5th, 2014.  The event includes a 1 mile fun walk/run, 5K run, and ½ marathon with proceeds assisting in the future education of nurses through The Lisa Purvis Allison “Spirit of Nursing” scholarship 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.
