August 21, 2017  • OKFB Leadership Team

The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee selected three students to receive $500 scholarships to study nursing.

The annual scholarship program awards three $500 scholarships to students studying nursing at an accredited college, university, vo-tech or trade school. Applicants must be Oklahoma Farm Bureau members or a member of a Farm Bureau member family.

The three students receiving 2017 OKFB WLC Nurse’s Scholarships are:

  • Mary K. Bell, Creek County
  • Jordan Lingo, Canadian County
  • Justine Redcay, Haskell County

The WLC understands the important role nurses and healthcare professionals play in ensuring a high quality of life for all residents across our state, and especially rural residents. With the cost of education increasing yearly, the committee is proud to provide three students with scholarships to help pursue their dreams in nursing.

This year, OKFB WLC members will hold a silent auction to benefit the OKFB WLC Nurse’s Scholarship Fund during their annual Fall Conference Sept. 15-16. Conference attendees and leaders will donate items for the silent auction, which will be held Friday morning. Learn more about the conference here.
