Stacie Jackson of Wynne has been named the recipient of the Jessie E. Smith Swindle Nursing Scholarship for the spring semester 2016.
The Jessie Smith Swindle Nursing Scholarship is dedicated to assisting full time EACC nursing students from Cross County, Arkansas. The award is $500 per academic semester, based on availability of funds to cover expenses of tuition, fees, books and supplies.
Stacie Jackson is currently enrolled in the Nursing Program at EACC. After graduation, she plans to continue her education in a Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, and eventually become an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN). “I am thankful to the Swindle family for this scholarship,” said Jackson.
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.
