The Sheila Watts Barrow “Butterfly” Scholarship has been established to honor the memory of Sheila Watts Barrow, Class of ’95, the president of the Charter Practical Nursing Class at Delta College. Sheila was a talented and dedicated nurse, a wife, mother, and wonderful friend, and to keep her memory alive, the scholarship has been established by her faculty and friends at Delta College.
Each year a student who has reached the mid-point of their nursing program at Delta and completed the application process will be selected as the recipient of this award. The first scholarship will be presented in November of 2014. The award selection committee is comprised of the four women who were Sheila’s nursing instructors and four of her classmates, Class of ’95. Sheila’s daughter also sits on the committee.
Donations to the Scholarship Fund are always welcome. For further information contact Barbara Demarest at 225-756-8948.
Ms. Demarest, representing the scholarship committee, met with our day & night students on last Wednesday & Thursday to present the Butterfly Scholarship. It was well received by the students. Students must submit the requested information (a letter of recommendation from a classroom & clinical instructor, a personal essay & a transcript) no later than September 12, 2014 to be considered for the scholarship.
