Anna Pearl Sherrick Scholarship

 

PURPOSE OF SCHOLARSHIP:

Anna Pearl Sherrick founded the Montana State University - Bozeman College of Nursing in 1937 and served as its first director.  Through her leadership, the MSU-Bozeman Nursing Program grew and developed with an emphasis on well prepared faculty members and innovative delivery of education to meet Montana's unique needs.  It is Dr. Sherrick's dedication and foresight which provided the foundation for the nationally recognized programs of excellence at the MSU-Bozeman College of Nursing today.  In 1989, Dr. Sherrick published a book entitled "Worldwide Events Influencing Nursing in Montana."  Dr. Sherrick generously donated these books and the proceeds of their sale to the College, and a scholarship has been established in her name.
