Jinny Scifres Scholarship Recipients Named
Jessica Jackson and Andrea Brough are the 2017 recipients of the Jinny Scifres Memorial Scholarship.
After starting a family, Jinny made the tough decision to return to school and study nursing. After graduation, she began her nursing career at Washington County Memorial Hospital as an Emergency Room Nurse. Jinny’s love of nursing eventually lead her to several promotions and back to school once again. She eventually became the Director of Patient Care Services.
Jinny died in the fall of 2000, after bravely battling bone cancer. Her family and many friends established this scholarship fund in her memory, to assist others who, like Jinny, return to school to study nursing after starting a family or career.
Jackson is a student at Ivy Tech Community College and is in the LPN to RN Bridge Nursing Program. Brough is currently studying in the LPN program at Ivy Tech Community College and plans to transition to the LPN to RN Bridge Nursing Program as well.
