Student Nursing Association Wins Two Sammy Awards!

It is with great pleasure to announce that the SHSU Student Nurses Association (SNA) won the Sammy award on April 12 for Outstanding Academic/Honorary Organization.  Due to the outstanding dedication and commitment of the Spring and Fall 2016 board and the membership they received this prestigious award.  Despite the rigors of the nursing program, 24-40 hours of class and clinical per week, our membership for more than 70, still completed more than 800 volunteer hours last year which equates to over $11000 in manpower.  We provided service to various agencies throughout Huntsville, The Woodlands and the surrounding areas at places such as the 10 for Texas run, The Gathering Place,  Saafe House, and All Paws In, just to name a very few.  They are also committed to developing the leadership within the organization and the education of nurses and donated time to educational events such as the Community Nursing Disaster Simulation.  Of special note is their commitment to Saturday’s at Sam for which they were also presented with a monetary reward for the most volunteers from an organization. 

Congratulations SNA!  You live the SHSU Motto: “A measure of a life is its service”!
