Hardy Receives Eastman Pilot Club’s Joyce B. Jones Nursing Scholarship
The Joyce B. Jones Nursing Scholarship was recently given to Catherine Hardy, an Oconee Fall Line Technical College (OFTC) Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) Bridge Program student, from the Pilot Club of Eastman.
The Pilot Club of Eastman’s focus is brain safety and helping those with brain related disorders, diseases and disabilities, shared Nylan Hinson, Chair of the Scholarship Committee and Recording Secretary for Eastman’s Pilot Club.
“Since nurses play such an important role in helping people with these issues, we established the Joyce B. Jones Nursing Scholarship after a former Pilot member whose granddaughter is a Registered Nurse to award to a deserving OFTC nursing student in our area each year,” Nylan shared.
“Catherine has worked very hard working to obtain her RN degree at OFTC and is very deserving of this award. We wish her continued success.”
