Hurd blazes new trails for School of Nursing
But it is her generous spirit and admiration for nurses that brought Mrs. Hurd to the Health Science Center. Last December, Mrs. Hurd became one of the strongest benefactors in the history of the School of Nursing, establishing the Nancy Smith Hurd Endowed Nursing Scholarship with her landmark gift of $500,000.
"The Health Science Center has a very special place in my heart," Mrs. Hurd said. "I was moved by a deep respect for nurses who unselfishly care for the sick and wounded."
President Cigarroa recognized her extraordinary leadership by naming the Nancy Smith Hurd Auditorium in her honor so future nursing students will be inspired by her Texas pioneer spirit. "It is inspiring to see the strength and beauty of such a noble lady," Dr. Cigarroa said. "Her remarkable gift has touched our university and the future of nursing forever."
