ELLISVILLE – Jones County Junior College associate degree nursing student, Krystal Brown was recently awarded the Mississippi Nurses Foundation Scholarship. The non-traditional student from Petal was honored with the surprise in front of her student peers by Mississippi Nurses Foundation Executive Director, Rosalyn Smith-Howard. Brown said the $1,000 scholarship will be a big financial relief with college expenses.
“Being a nurse has always been a dream of mine since I was child,” said the mother of two girls aged 22 and 19. “This is a big blessing from God! I can’t thank the Mississippi Nurses Foundation enough.”
Brown had worked in Laurel as an L.P.N. for 12 years before deciding to come back to school to become an R.N.
