Amanda Cordell, a Nursing student at Three Rivers College, has been awarded the Brenda Murphy Gettings Memorial Scholarship.

The scholarship was created in memory of Brenda Murphy Gettings, a graduate of Three Rivers College’s Nursing program. Her family members award a $500 scholarship to a second-year Three Rivers nursing student who lives in the four-county taxing district, based on need and essays submitted by applicants.

The scholarship is funded by an annual 5K Run/Walk, held by Gettings’ family, that also funds other scholarships.

Cordell lives in Neelyville and anticipates graduating in December 2018.

Anyone interested in awarding a scholarship, one-time or endowed, to Three Rivers College students may call the Development Office at 840-9077.
