Katherine Wilson Scholar Meets Anne and John Wilson

Anne and John Wilson met Katherine Wilson Scholarship recipient Anneka Huegerich at her July graduation from nursing school. Anne Wilson says, “She was the perfect choice. Katherine would have been so thrilled to know she had been able to help such a lovely, deserving person.” Anneka was the first acclerated BSN student selected to receive the scholarship award that pays out $5,000 per year in support. The application deadline for the next Katherine Wilson Scholar is September 10, 2010. Applications can be found at http://nursing.unc.edu
