Fund Story

Ruth Howe possessed three fundamental qualities; a strong devotion for nursing, a commitment to the community, and empathy for others. Ruth’s family established the Ruth M. Howe Nursing Scholarship to honor students who emulate Mrs. Howe’s qualities and wish to pursue an undergraduate nursing degree for the Registered Nurse designation; preferably a bachelor degree from an accredited, tax-exempt college or university.
