Camden Clark Foundation Honors Nurse Alumnae, Provides Scholarship Funding to Future Generation of Local Nurses

The Camden Clark Foundation honored past, present and future generations of nurses in observance of National Nurses Month at a luncheon on Friday, May 5.

Nearly 30 alumnae from the former Camden Clark School of Nursing, members of the CCMC nursing leadership team and other guests gathered for the celebration where two $2,000 scholarships were awarded to Olivia Cress and Regan Smith, both WVU School of Nursing students. The scholarships were presented in memory of former Camden Clark director of nursing, Ella Bloomheart, and grateful patient, Barbara Fonte.

In addition, T.R. Hathaway, Superior Toyota Hyundai owner, presented a $2,000 check to the Camden Clark Foundation during the luncheon. The gift will be designated for nursing scholarships for local students in honor of Hathaway’s aunt, Janet Loray Hathaway Snook, a 1961 graduate of the Camden Clark School of Nursing and current Florida resident.  

The Camden Clark School of Nursing graduated its last class in 1969.
