Linda Evelyn Thornton Endowed Scholarship Fund
Dr. William Norman Thornton Jr. established this scholarship in 1994 in honor of his daughter, Linda, who has since passed away. Linda was institutionalized, and the scholarship is a thank-you to the nursing professionals who cared for her for so many years. The scholarship provides support to undergraduate and/or graduate students who enroll in the School of Nursing. The dean of the Nursing School selects recipients of the scholarships from among well-rounded individuals who show academic excellence and professional promise.
