The Hospital Volunteers of Venice presented a $5,000 Excellence in Nursing Scholarship to State College of Florida, Manatee Sarasota (SCF) nursing student Kathrine Satterley, May 5 during the nurses pinning ceremony at SCF’s Neel Performing Arts Center.
Satterley, who earned her Associate in Nursing, has been taking classes toward her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at SCF Venice while working full time. She also is active in the Venice community, volunteering for the St. Francis Animal Shelter.
“We believe SCF is one of the premier nursing schools, especially when it comes to quality and cost,” said Dick Fenstermaker, past president of Hospital Volunteers of Venice, during the nurses pinning ceremony.
Fenstermaker said Satterley’s work, dedication and leadership abilities helped her earn the scholarship.
“This grant recognizes the importance of skilled nursing services and it enables the best and the brightest to become leaders,” Fenstermaker said. “Kathrine has the leadership potential we want to recognize.”
