Western Heritage Bank vice chairman of the board Bob Snow and his wife, Jane, have pledged a gift of $25,000 to support a scholarship fund for students at the Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing.
“What we want to do is encourage others to give whatever amount they can give. Scholarships are a direct need and a direct benefit to the students and our community,” Bob Snow said.
“The university is creating jobs. It’s bringing in new doctors and nurses to serve our region. It is, in my opinion, one of the most important things going on in El Paso today. If you see what’s happening here, you’ll see the need and maybe somewhere in your heart make a decision to donate to the university and invest in the future of health care.”
TTUHSC El Paso will match the Snows’ generous gift through the President’s Excellence Fund, making a total of $50,000 available for nursing student scholarships.
The announcement was made during TTUHSC El Paso’s inaugural Sip & Sim event Tuesday evening, June 11, at the school of nursing.
Sip & Sim is a social event that brings together El Paso community members and business leaders for an up-close look at the university’s medical simulation laboratories.
