The Judith Randolph-Longwood Chapter NSDAR is honored to announce the 2020 recipient of the Grace L. Jones Memorial Nursing Scholarship.  Audra Leighanne Murphy, a senior from Fuqua School, has been chosen to receive the  $1,000 award.

The scholarship was established to honor the memory of Grace L. Jones.  Grace had only an eighth-grade education, but had a vast knowledge of world experiences during her active 97 years of life.  Raising her daughters as a single mother only strengthened her.  Grace’s life was hard and her family had very little money.  Her dream was for her daughters to have more opportunities at education than she had.

Murphy, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Murphy of Prospect, will be attending East Carolina State University in the fall to major in nursing.
