Jennifer Cotton Grad Scholarship applications accepted until May 2nd

LACONIA — The family of the late Jennifer Cotton Grad, BSN, MS, is accepting applications for the eighth annual Jennifer Cotton Grad Memorial Nursing Scholarship.

From 1987 to 2000 Grad performed many roles and was connected to several departments at LRGHealthcare, including floor nursing, Intensive Care, the Community Wellness Center, and Clinical Education Services. Whether it was direct patient care or teaching, her enthusiasm was evident and countless people benefited from her commitment. She was known for always having a positive attitude and outlook. Grad loved life and had great relationships with her co-workers at LRGHealthcare. Nursing and education were her passions.

Members of Grad's family have established two $500 scholarships for 2014, and they are searching for individuals who have the qualities and attributes that Grad possessed. Special consideration will be given to students who demonstrate financial need, and to graduates of Inter-Lakes High School who have been accepted into a nursing program or to LRGHealthcare nurses who are planning to continue their education.

The deadline to send applications is May 2, 2014. For an application contact Darcy Peary at LRGHealthcare: 737-6720 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
