JPMF Announces Karla Foster as Scholarship Recipient
Jess Parrish Medical Foundation awarded the 2014 Karla Foster, RN, Memorial
Scholarship of $3,000 to Nicole Jordan. The scholarship was established
by Doug Foster in loving memory of his wife, Karla, who was tragically
killed on September 11, 2006 by a hit and run driver. Karla had been a
nurse at Parrish Medical Center for more than 22 years.
“I'm sincerely grateful to Jess Parrish Medical Foundation for
awarding me with this scholarship, which will help me pay for tuition
and achieve my goal of becoming a Registered Nurse. Nursing is not a burden,
but a passion and a calling. I am so honored to receive this scholarship
and to carry on the legacy of Karla Foster through my commitment to compassionate
and holistic nursing care," stated Jordan, bachelor’s degree
student at Adventist University of Health Sciences.
