The Chatlos Foundation has awarded a grant to Lee University to provide scholarships to nursing students for the 2020-2021 school year.

“It is the generosity of foundations such as Chatlos that allows our nursing students to succeed in their educational journeys,” said Dr. Sara Campbell, dean of Lee’s School of Nursing. “In times like these, even more students are struggling with finances, and it is crucial to have funds to assist with the cost of attending nursing school. We are extremely appreciative of the support.”

The scholarships were awarded to returning junior and senior nursing students to enable them to complete their Bachelor of Science in nursing at Lee. They were recommended upon application by Campbell and confirmed by Marian Dill, director of financial aid at Lee.

The recipients of the Chatlos Foundation scholarships are Micah Farr, a senior from Meadow Bridge, W.V.; Shekinah Miranda, a senior from Santa Cruz, Bolivia; and Macy Wiggins, a junior from Englewood, Tn.

Ms. Farr plans to work in a hospital in the Cleveland area or in her hometown after graduation. In addition to nursing, she is pursuing a minor in intercultural studies at Lee.

After graduation, Ms. Miranda plans to stay in the United States and work before joining the Mercy Ships, an international charity that operates as the largest non-governmental hospital ship in the world. At Lee, Ms. Miranda has been a part of Lee’s diversity club, Leetinos; played intramural sports; and served at a local church as a Sunday school teacher. Ms. Miranda is also a member of Lee’s Phi Eta Sigma honors society.

"Receiving this award was an answer to prayer and another instance demonstrating the Lord's provision as I pursue serving Him through my nursing career,” said Ms. Miranda.

Ms. Wiggins is involved in the Student Nurses Association and Lee’s Learn Engage Achieve Program where she is a peer leader. After graduation, she plans to move back to her hometown and eventually obtain a position in labor and delivery.

“This award was a huge encouragement to me financially and educationally,” said Ms. Wiggins. “It has helped me realize that my hard work will lay the path for my success. One day, I hope to help students like myself and impact their lives like this foundation has mine.”

The Chatlos Foundation was founded in 1953 and funds nonprofit organizations around the globe. The foundation’s areas of interest are Bible colleges/seminaries, religious causes, medical concerns, liberal arts colleges and social concerns.
