Georgia Ragsdale and Laura Ragsdale Nursing Endowed Scholarship

This endowment is being established by John Ragsdale in honor of his daughters, Georgia and Laura. Being honored by their father with this scholarship endowment for nursing students at Sam Houston State University is especially meaningful to both Georgia and Laura because their mother, Mary Ellen Mintzas Ragsdale, spent her entire career as a dedicated and compassionate registered nurse. This scholarship reflects a commitment to help other obtain their nursing degree and make certain that when someone calls for a “Nurse!” that call is answered.
