Penn College student receives Graham Nursing Scholarship


Pennsylvania College of Technology student Kara N. Libby was one of eight recipients of the 39th annual Lee and Bessie Graham Nursing Scholarship.

The scholarship was presented recently by UPMC Susquehanna Lock Haven Hospital and the Lee & Bessie Graham Nursing Scholarship Trust.

Libby, of Jersey Shore, is pursuing an associate degree in nursing from the college.

“We have been blessed to receive scholarship applications from an impressive group of students, including current nursing professionals who are continuing their education and growth, as well as those just starting to pursue a career in nursing,” said Ron Reynolds, chief administrative officer, UPMC Susquehanna Lock Haven. “The generosity of the Graham family has allowed us to contribute to the education of the next generation of nurses who will be the future of health care.”

The late Bessie Graham established the scholarship trust in 1979 in her and her husband’s name to assist graduates of Clinton County high schools interested in pursuing a career in nursing. Recipients are chosen for scholarship awards based on their acceptance in a nursing program, graduation from a Clinton County high school, grades and personal references.

Penn College offers associate and bachelor’s degrees in nursing. To learn more, email or call 570-327-4519.
