David Ladyman, a Nursing student at Three Rivers College, has received the Allison Grace Daughhetee Scholarship. Ladyman, who lives in Greenville, is married to Ellie Ladyman and is the son of David and Diann Ladyman of Williamsville.

“I’m very grateful,” said Ladyman. “And working to live life like there’s no tomorrow.”

Ladyman is enrolled in the RN program. “I’ve always liked healthcare,” he said. “My wife is a nurse, so I’ve been able to see how impactful it’s been on her.”

The scholarship was endowed in memory of Allison Grace Daughhetee, the daughter of Three Rivers nursing graduates Ronnie and Melissa Daughhetee, who were in the process of completing their degrees when their daughter was killed in a car accident. Three Rivers College created the scholarship fund as a gift to Allison Daughhetee’s parents, announcing the endowment to the couple as they received their degrees in nursing. The scholarship is awarded annually to a nontraditional student in the Three Rivers nursing programs.

This scholarship represents some of the nearly $40,000 that will be awarded to students this fall by the Three Rivers Endowment Trust, a 501(c)(3) organization that receives and manages donations on behalf of Three Rivers College. The Endowment Trust provides a mutually beneficial means for individuals and businesses to partner with the College.
