The Donna M. Fair Scholar Award was established in 1999 in memory of Donna M. Fair, a professor and alumna of the MCG School of Nursing. Joining the Department of Adult Nursing in 1973, she taught medical surgical nursing and served as Coordinator of the Nursing Skills Laboratory during her tenure at the School of Nursing. Ms. Fair retired in 1995 and died in 1999. An endowment has been established through a bequest from Ms. Fair to fund awards to students who demonstrate promise in specialty nursing fields important to Ms. Fair. Two students, one undergraduate and one graduate, will receive awards annually. The awards also consider leadership ability. An award of $1,000 will be given to each of the winners. A panel formed from the School of Nursing Alumni Association’s Board of Directors will determine the winner.
