Students Meet their Supporters in Annual Nursing Scholarship Events

October 4, 2022

“Being a nurse connects you to your community in a way that illustrates how needed and how valued you are.”

The words from Kathryn Tart, Professor and Founding Dean of the University of Houston College of Nursing, rang true for the nearly 100 nursing students, their families and other supporters who gathered for the UH College of Nursing 2022 Scholarship Banquets. The college held separate events for students at the Sugar Land and Katy instructional sites.

A group of nursing students stand together in red shirts holding their right hangs in a cougar paw sign.

“You do not pursue this work on your own,” she said. “You are held up by people you may not even know, but who support the work of nurses and acknowledge the need for more of them.”
