The 11th Annual Honor A Nurse Celebration sponsored by Union Bank recognized and honored the exceptional care provided from members of the nursing service and helped to support the Mathewson-Bonser Nursing Scholarships.  We celebrated 46 nurses/nursing groups at the annual reception this September at Marshall Hospital.  Thanks to our fabulous volunteers and generous donors, the event raised over $14,000 for future scholarships and community health programs!

We could not raise these vital resources without the generous support of our sponsors:
