The first annual Marie C. McQueen Scholarship was awarded this month to a St. Elizabeth College of Nursing senior student, Magdalena (Maggie) Wozny of Utica. The scholarship was made possible through the not-for-profit American Family Foundation, Inc.
The scholarship was awarded to Ms. Wozny for her demonstrated commitment to her faith, compassion, volunteerism and courage in the face of adversity.
Mrs. McQueen passed way in June 2012 and her family remarked upon the compassionate care that she received from the nurses and student nurses at St. Elizabeth Medical Center, prior to her passing. These same virtues are those that were attributed to Marie by her family.
