“Show me a successful individual and I’ll show you someone who had real positive influences in his or her life. I don’t care what you do for a living—if you do it well I’m sure there was someone cheering you on or showing the way. A mentor.” — Denzel Washington
“Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another."— Proverbs 27:17
When we look back at the impact that Dr. Wilson has had in our lives and careers, we realize that she had planned for our success even before we knew how successful we would be. She saw something in us and invested her wisdom, knowledge, resources and time in helping us succeed.
When you realize you were special enough, important enough for someone to invest in you, then their legacy will continue to live on through your testimony.
The Dr. Feleta Wilson Memorial Scholarship is our testimony to the everlasting impact that our mentor, Dr. Feleta Wilson has had in our lives and the lives of countless others. By providing scholarships to other nurses, her legacy will continue to live on through us.
