New community-based service award available to nursing students

GREENVILLE, N.C.   (Feb. 22, 2010)   —   A community-based service award for nursing students has been established by Susan L. Henry, assistant research professor at Laupus Library and liaison to the East Carolina University College of Nursing.

The award honors Susan’s parents, Erma and Paul Henry, for their lifelong dedication to public service. Dr. Paul Henry was an associate superintendent of schools in Montgomery County, Md. Erma Henry was a stay-at-home mother. They led by example, participating in their community, PTA, church and neighborhood. Erma Henry died in 2007 and Paul Henry died in 2009.

The community based service does not have to be performed in Greenville or Pitt County. Students are eligible if they are current degree-seeking ECU nursing students. An award of up to $500 will be given each year. The deadline for application is March 16. For more information, contact
