Haley Parson of Moro has been awarded the East Arkansas Community College Foundation’s Burt-Davis Nursing Scholarship for the fall 2017 semester.
The Burt-Davis Scholarship is dedicated to assisting a student who is accepted in the college’s nursing program.
Parson is currently enrolled in the EACC Nursing Program. She began her education at EACC as a concurrent high school student, and has been a member of the Honors Program while at EACC. After completing EACC’s nursing program, Parson plans to work as a nurse at Forrest City Medical Center while also continuing her education online. “I am incredibly honored to have been chosen to receive this scholarship,” said Parson. “It will help greatly with my tuition and the cost of books as I work toward my degree,” she added.
The late Marguerite L. Burt established the Burt-Davis Nursing Scholarship in 2013 to honor the memory of her mother, Mrs. Bertha Davis Burt and grandmother, Mrs. Sally Stephens Davis, and to show support for the nursing field which was such an important part of their lives. Ms. Burt was a registered nurse for over 70 years, following in the footsteps of her mother and grandmother.
The EACC Foundation’s mission is to generate support and advocacy for East Arkansas Community College in the communities it serves.
