Thank You to Our DonorThe program is made possible through a
very generous donation to the School of Nursing and Health Sciences by
philanthropist The Very Reverend Fredrick "Rick" Quinney Lawson. Rev.
Lawson has been a long-time supporter of Westminster. He was integrally
involved in the creation of the Emma Eccles Jones Center for Nursing
and Heath Sciences, which was funded by his great aunt, Emma Eccles
Jones' Foundation. As a reverend at St. Marks Cathedral in Salt Lake,
Rev. Lawson is uniquely tied to the college
since Westminster's nursing program conducts their annual pinning
ceremony there. In 2003, he was presented an honorary degree from the
college for his genuine concern for the community.
