BYU College of Nursing plans endowment dinner April 1

Brigham Young University’s College of Nursing will host this year’s Mary Ellen Edmunds Nursing Endowment for the Healer’s Art Dinner Wednesday, April 1, at 6:30 p.m. in the Gordon B. Hinckley Alumni and Visitors Center.

Tickets for the dinner are available through Wednesday, March 25. For more information or to purchase tickets, call Rose Ann Jarrett at (801) 422-4143.

The event will feature guest speaker Chieko N. Okazaki. A native of Hawaii and a popular speaker, Okazaki has served for more than 30 years as an elementary school teacher and principal, as a member of various boards and councils and as a church leader. She served on the Primary and Young Women General Boards of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and as first counselor in the presidency of the General Relief Society. Her messages of hope and faith are presented in her book, “Being Enough.”

The celebration dinner will include remarks from Mary Ellen Edmunds, who graduated from the College of Nursing in 1962 and later became a member of the nursing faculty. Edmunds was a member of the Relief Society General Board of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and previously served as a director of training at the Missionary Training Center in Provo. She also served several full-time proselyting and welfare missions to Asia and Africa.

The event honors the work of Edmunds and recognizes the mission of the BYU College of Nursing. The endowment was established in 2005 to support faculty-mentored, student experiences in the art and science of healing.
