Jessie Bouland of Vanndale and Lynda McKee of Wynne have been named recipients of the Jessie E. Smith Swindle Nursing Scholarship for the fall semester 2015.
The Jessie Smith Swindle Nursing Scholarship is dedicated to assisting full time EACC nursing students from Cross County, Arkansas. The award is $1000 per academic year, based on availability of funds to cover expenses of tuition, fees, books and supplies.
Jessie Bouland is currently enrolled in the Nursing Program at EACC. After graduation, she plans to attend Arkansas State University in Jonesboro and continue her education to become a Nurse Practitioner and work with children. “I am very honored to have been chosen to receive this scholarship,” said Bouland. “It will help me financially and academically as I focus on my studies and achieve my goal of becoming a Nurse Practitioner,” she said.
Lynda McKee is also a nursing student at EACC. After working over 30 years, McKee decided to attend college and pursue her life-long desire of a college degree. She worked for several years filing medical claims, and is now pursuing a career in nursing so that she can work directly with patients. After graduating, McKee plans to work as a registered nurse. “I am so appreciative of the kindness extended toward me through this scholarship,” said McKee. “I am in my final year and the financial support this affords will help assure my success. The generosity of others has the potential of making society a better place,” she added.
The family of Jessie Smith Swindle established this scholarship to honor her memory and show support for nursing education which was such an important part of her life. At age 50, Jessie began her training to become an LPN. Once completed, she had a nursing career that spanned 22 years in Cross County, Arkansas. The Jessie Smith Swindle Scholarship is made possible through the generosity of her son, Ronald K. Swindle and his wife, Minette Clarke-Swindle.
