The College of Nursing’s 2018 reunion weekend — themed “Gator Nurses Going Greater” — was a busy two days packed with events attended by many alumni and friends. The college’s Donor Recognition Event was held the night of Sept. 7, and gave Dean Anna McDaniel the opportunity to publicly recognize and thank loyal donors. Student scholarship recipients also had the opportunity to meet and personally thank their benefactors. Four individuals were recognized during the night’s program as recipients of the Care, Lead and Inspire Awards, as well as the Preceptor of the Year Award.
On Sept. 8, the college’s alumni reunion tailgate was hosted at the Harrell Medical Education Building before the Gator game against Kentucky. Attendees connected with other Gator Nurses, students and faculty, and enjoyed barbecue, music, games, face painting and a silent auction to benefit the Alumni
Council Book Awards. In total, the silent auction raised $4,276 for the book awards scholarships.
