Graduate Scholarship: Ann Nees Memorial Scholarship

The Ann Nees Memorial Scholarship was created in 2000 to honor Ann Nees and her dedication to nursing and nursing education. Ann Nees was a nurse educator at the APS Career Enrichment Center. Each year the scholarship is awarded to one or more graduates from the Career Enrichment Center that are continuing their education in nursing.

In honor of Ann’s birthday, November 6, the scholarship committee requests contributions to the scholarship fund. Contributions to the scholarship fund can be made at the time of her birthday or at any time during the year. If you contribute at your workplace to United Way, you can specify the Ann Nees Memorial Scholarship Fund at the Career Enrichment Center. Tax-deductible contributions may be sent to:
