The Panhandle Great 25 Nurses is an opportunity to recognize Registered Nurses from ALL practice areas for their contributions to the communities in which they live and practice both the art and science of nursing. The success of the 2016 inaugural recognition event allowed the Great 25 committee to allocate six- 1000 dollar scholarships for nurses to continue to pursue and advance their education in the field of professional nursing and to provide healthcare to the citizens in their respective Panhandle communities. Building on the great success from the 2nd annual event, the dollar amount to be allocated has increased to 1500 dollars for six students. As we embark on our 3rd year celebration, we invite you to join our efforts to recognize 25 deserving professional nurses throughout the Texas Panhandle. The Panhandle Great 25 Nurses Celebration tremendously appreciates our past sponsors who have helped to make the event so successful. The committee would like to extend the 2018 sponsorship opportunity to our corporate, industry, and community business partners, as well as individual sponsors to help us ensure the tradition of the Panhandle Great 25 and its mission continues. Our hope is this award will continue to be recognized throughout the nursing community for years to come in the Texas Panhandle as an esteemed honor and prestigious accomplishment for the nursing profession.
