Chapter EU of the P.E.O. Sisterhood in McPherson is pleased to announce three area students; Jennifer Colborn, Kyndra Morris, and Kira Tinin, have been selected for scholarships.
These three students currently attend Hutchinson Community College Practical Nursing Programs here in McPherson and will complete their programs in 2018.
In addition, they are all non-traditional students and each have three children.
Jennifer Colborn received a scholarship from Chapter EU. Kyndra Morris received a book scholarship from Chapter EU and was awarded a P.E.O. Program for Continuing Education award from the International Organization. Kira Tinin also received a P.E.O. Program for Continuing Education award from the International Organization.
The P.E.O. Program for Continuing Education is a grant program providing financial assistance to women who find it necessary to return to school to support themselves and their families.
Chapter EU sponsored Kyndra and Kira and recommended them for these awards totaling $4,700. Chapter EU was able to provide the two local scholarships totaling $740 through a generous bequest and donations from current members.
The Chapter is excited to assist these determined students in reaching their goals of becoming nurses and helping support their families. Recipients received the local awards in September and will receive the International Awards in December.
