Students to walk for scholarship

DANVILLE — Some Lakeview College of Nursing students are organizing a walk to honor nurses and fund a scholarship for a nursing student.

The second annual Nurses Walk will be held on April 23 at Lincoln Park, 900 W. English Ave., Danville. The walk will begin at dusk, approximately 7 p.m.

The public is invited to participate and help light up the walk by purchasing a luminary for $5 apiece. Each luminary will honor the nurse of the purchaser's choosing.

The students who are organizing the walk are Nina Fainter of Homer; Amanda Miller and Debbie Decker, of Muncie; and Kayla Blackburn and Haley Kevil, of Catlin.

The group plans to honor and acknowledge nurses of the past, present and future during the walk. The event also will include a guest speaker and a raffle.

Proceeds from the event will fund an academic scholarship for a Lakeview College of Nursing student.
