Heather Herring, a junior nursing major in the Lee University School of Nursing, recently received the Willie J. Neese Nursing Scholarship, funded by the Tennessee Elks Benevolent Trust (TEBT).

The TEBT is a nonprofit Tennessee Corporation. It established the Nursing Scholarship program in 1956 as a means to relieve a critical shortage of nurses in Tennessee. The TEBT funds 63 annual nursing scholarships.


“I am so proud of Heather for receiving this scholarship,” said Pamela Hobbs, lecturer in health science at Lee. “If ever there was a student who exemplifies what this Elks Scholarship represents – honesty, integrity, and dependability – it is Heather. Whether in the classroom, in her personal life, or in service to the department as a student worker, Heather epitomizes these traits.”
