USF Crown Point student dual scholarship recipient

June 25, 2014 CROWN POINT, Ind. - University of Saint Francis Crown Point Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) candidate Nancy Smith has received two scholarships for her fall 2014 studies.

Smith received the Ruth B. Sayre Memorial Scholarship, offered by Country Women’s Council USA each year to a U.S. citizen with financial need and academic ability. The scholarship’s namesake was known as the “First Lady of the Farm” by inspiring millions of rural women to improve themselves and their communities through her practicality, humor, decency and common sense. She served as Associated Country Women of the World president from 1947-1953.

In support of its mission to strengthen families through continuing education, leadership development and volunteer community support, the Indiana Extension Homemakers granted Smith the Ann Hancook Scholarship for Indiana students age 25 and older who are seeking degrees in the medical profession.

Smith will earn her nursing degree at the University of Saint Francis Crown Point in spring 2015.

The University of Saint Francis, founded in 1890 as a comprehensive university in the Catholic Franciscan tradition, offers more than 80 undergraduate and graduate programs through the School of Health Sciences, School of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Keith Busse School of Business and Entrepreneurial Leadership and School of Creative Arts. In addition to its traditional programs, the university designs focused curriculum for working adults in Fort Wayne, Crown Point and online. More than 2,400 students from a broad geographic region attend USF for its academic excellence.
