               Past Presidents Parley Nurses Scholarship Fund

Active service by all Past Presidents, at all levels, is encouraged. Auxiliary Past Presidents continue their support of the organization by accepting responsibility that the knowledge and wisdom of a past leader can make a difference. As past leaders, they support the Auxiliary as ambassadors for the organization. Past Presidents strive to strengthen each level of the organization and promote growth through positive actions.
The purpose of the Nurses Scholarship is to assist deserving students who are pursuing an education in the nursing field. Fundraising efforts are to provide scholarship benefits to individuals entering or attending nursing training. The fund also develops resources about financial aid information for nursing students.
