The CMAA has been a consistent and committed supporter of the College for many years.

This scholarship is given in appreciation of the collaborative partnership shared by MCCN and CMAA.

In 1945, Josephine Walters found herself a widow with two teenage daughters, one of whom had just been diagnosed with polio. She went to work to support her family and throughout her life she exhibited a loving, kind and caring personality to everyone she met. When she became ill at the age of 88 and nurses were called to care for her, she continued to share the love and compassion she had always shown to her family and friends. This same affection and compassion was returned to her by the nurses who felt privileged to care for her.

This scholarship fund was established in memory of Charles and Teresa Uhl by their daughter, Michele Uhl Born, graduate of Mount Carmel, and the Uhl Family Foundation.

Cardinal Health helps pharmacies, hospitals and ambulatory care sites focus on patient care while reducing costs, improving efficiency and quality. They believe in the health and well-being of our communities and initiated this scholarship fund at Mount Carmel to support excellence in nursing education.

Mr. John DeGregori of Stockton, California serves as the executor of the Schwemley Foundaton, which has awarded over $400,000 to students at Mount Carmel College of Nursing. The Foundation rewards students for high academic achievement, leadership experience and potential, community services, and their aspirations for their nursing careers. Dr. Schwemley died in an automobile accident, and Kathryn, a Mount Carmel graduate, class of 1955, remembered the College in her will. Both Robert and Kathryn were strong advocates for excellence in nursing education.

Lori is a graduate of the Class of 1982 and values her years at Mount Carmel. She and her husband Tom realize the importance of nursing education and established this scholarship endowment to help benefit MCCN students for years to come.

The College Board of Trustees has generously contributed their personal donation to fund scholarships which support MCCN students as they prepare to become professional nurses and improve the health care of our communities.
