There is much to share about the new Nursing program at HSU. Scheduled to open in Fall 2020, the partnerships making it possible have grown to include many, including St. Joseph Health, Sutter Coast Hospital in Crescent City, Humboldt Area Foundation, and the ever-important College of the Redwoods. Without the collaboration with CR and President Keith Flamer, we would not have been able to create the important link between the CR program and HSU’s. And looking ahead, Nursing is only a small part of what both CR and HSU have in mind.
There is an amazing sense of community and positive spirit on campus. Maybe it’s the sunshine or maybe it’s the great people. The recent Presidential Investiture activities brought out the very best in all of us. This was a chance for HSU to celebrate itself and to raise scholarship funds for students. It did exactly that. The Chancellor along with 21 CSU Trustees and Presidents were in attendance, all donned in colorful academic regalia. The faculty shined brightly in their pride for HSU. And the donors rose to the occasion by giving $161,000 to support students at the scholarship dinner. A few students and alumni shared inspirational stories about how scholarships had helped them. History major Jesse Bowling said scholarships are helping him achieve his dream to return to his alma mater, Eureka High School, as a history teacher. “I want to give back to the high school that gave to me,” says Bowling.
