Morning Pointe Foundation Announces TCAT-Jacksboro Nursing Scholars For 2020

Thursday, June 25, 2020

The Morning Pointe Foundation announces that Carla Livingstone, Peter Beshara, Sherry Owens and Jessica Prather have been named 2020 Morning Pointe Foundation scholars at Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT) – Jacksboro. The faculty of TCAT – Jacksboro nominated the students for this scholarship due to their high grades, skill and dedication as they pursue careers in geriatric nursing. 

The Morning Pointe Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Morning Pointe Senior Living and was founded in 2014 by senior healthcare entrepreneurs Greg A. Vital and J. Franklin Farrow. The 501(c)3 non-profit organization provides nursing scholarship opportunities, forms community partnerships and supports caregivers in its mission to advance the care of seniors.

Officials said, "As a large segment of the population continues to age, the demand for highly skilled nurses specially trained in geriatrics will only increase. Through scholarships, the Morning Pointe Foundation partners with community colleges and universities to support and encourage the next generation of excellent healthcare professionals. Ma. Livingstone, Mr. Beshara, Ms. Owens and Ms. Prather join the ranks of the more than 60 nursing students throughout the Southeast who have received the Morning Pointe Foundation scholarship since 2014."

“It is a privilege to be able to reward the hard work and dedication of promising nursing students,” said Audra Hopkins, the executive director of the Morning Pointe Foundation. “Through our scholarship, the Morning Pointe Foundation aspires to provide hope and encouragement to future geriatric nurses so that they will be able to provide that same hope and encouragement while serving our seniors.”

“The Morning Pointe Foundation has had great success partnering with Tennessee community colleges, including several TCAT locations, to raise the standard of geriatric healthcare across the state,” said Greg A. Vital, president of Morning Pointe Senior Living. “When our nursing students are able grow and thrive in the pursuit of excellence, everyone benefits—the students benefit, our community colleges benefit, our state healthcare system benefits and our seniors benefit.”

In addition to TCAT – Jacksboro, the Morning Pointe Foundation partners with eight more colleges in Tennessee, Kentucky, and Alabama to award scholarships to high-performing nursing students who have indicated an interest in pursuing geriatrics.
