Spalding Establishes Scholarship in Memory of Former Nursing Faculty Member

MARGE & FRANK PERRINDr. Marjorie Perrin was a respected and valued member of the Spalding University community from 1992 – 1997.  As Dean of Nursing and Health Sciences, she led a department that trained health care professionals who continue to serve the greater Louisville community and communities across the nation.  She established a certificate program in parish nursing that became a model for other institutions.  Following her tenure at Spalding, she continued to serve the School of Nursing as a member of its Advisory Board and its 75th Anniversary Celebration Planning Committee.  She was active in the life of Spalding and of the wider nursing community until her death in 2011.

In recognition of the impact Dr. Perrin had on Spalding University, its School of Nursing, and on generations of nursing professionals throughout her career, Spalding University has established the Dr. Marjorie M. Perrin Endowed Scholarship in Nursing to benefit graduate and undergraduate students.
