The Barbara Holland Rose Nursing Scholarship

This Fund was established by Mr. Loyd W. Rose Jr. in memory of Barbara Rose, his loving wife of 71 years. Barbara grew up in Dallas, N.C. and dreamed of becoming a nurse. But, after high school graduation, she was needed in the family business. However, she had two younger sisters and she encouraged both to pursue nursing school. Both sisters graduated from hospital nursing programs and enjoyed long careers in the nursing field. Scholarships are awarded to a student in the Nursing program with preference given to LPN-RN program. Students must live in North or South Carolina and have experience working in a hospital, nursing home, home healthcare or hospice setting and maintain a 2.5 GPA. Scholarship is renewable for a second year.
