The Sandra Calkins Kowalski Community Nursing Fund

The Sandra Calkins Kowalski Community Nursing Fund was started in 2003 to provide support to Purdue University Northwest, Westville, Indiana, in the education of those pursuing an undergraduate nursing degree with emphasis on community nursing or public health.

Sandra's Story

In 2006, Sandy’s husband, Stan, established The Sandra Calkins Kowalski Community Nursing Fund with the Unity Foundation of LaPorte County to provide support to Purdue University Northwest (Westville Campus) students pursuing an undergraduate degree in nursing, emphasizing community nursing or public health. Perhaps Sandy’s ultimate contribution will be to inspire future health care professionals. The fund would then help bring her inspiration to fruition.
