A recent event was held at the Spring Ridge Creamery to raise funds for the Judy Moore Memorial Scholarship Endowment – an affiliate of the NC Community Foundation. The event raised more than $1,200 for the endowment.
A raffle was included in the activities with Judy Hughes of Franklin winning the handmade quilt and Connery Elliott of Gainsville, Ga., winning the chain saw. This Scholarship Program for Nurses was established in 1997 as a memorial to Judy Moore, RN who was killed in a tragic accident in 1996.
A resident of Macon County, Judy was an inspiration to both nurses and patients in her role as a Community Health Nurse III and as an OB-GYN Nurse Practitioner.
The next cycle for the scholarship will be in May or June of 2012. Applicants must have completed their first semester in a Nursing Program and have met other eligibility requirements.
Scholarships are considered for both undergraduate and graduate scholarships.
Additional information about the scholarship is available on line via the NC Community Foundation site www.nccommunityfoundation.org or by calling Anne Hyder at (828)524-6564.
