PEO Chapter BV, Grangeville

GRANGEVILLE — Jenna Magill of Grangeville was recently presented with this year’s $1,000 Sharon Clark Nursing Scholarship by PE0 Chapter BV. In June, Magill will begin her program to become a RN at Walla Walla Community College. She is currently working as a CNA at Syringa Hospital while her husband is serving in the military.

Sharon Rupe Clark graduated from Grangeville High School in the 1953. Receiving a scholarship from the Soroptimists helped her complete her nursing degree. She said giving the scholarship to a nursing student is her way of paying forward. She lives in LaFayette, Calif., but still considers Grangeville home.

PEO’s focus is to provide educational opportunities to women.
