Finally, Jackie Jones Stone '64 and her twin sister Jeannette Jones '64, both members of the first graduating class of nurses at East Carolina, decided to bequeath a significant portion of their estates to scholarships for undergraduate students in the College of Nursing. The scholarships will be given to students from eastern North Carolina and eastern Virginia with an interest in community health nursing or psychiatric nursing.

"We're thinking about the future. It's very difficult for families today [to pay for college] so any little bit we could give, we wanted to do it. It's the least we could do," the sisters agreed on a recent visit to campus. "Giving these students a chance, that's what it's about. The more scholarships there are, the more attractive a school is. We hope this scholarship can make a difference in one more person studying nursing and being successful at ECU and in their career."
