Nash Community College recently announced that Mary Ann Proctor is the recipient of the Park View Hospital Nurses’ Alumnae Scholarship.
Proctor is a nursing student from Rocky Mount. The scholarship was established in 1989 by the Park View Hospital Nurses’ Alumnae Association.
Park View Hospital opened its doors on July 1, 1914, and closed in May 1971. In 1914, Park View opened with a 25-bed capacity serving the community for 57 years. During its reign as the largest hospital in Rocky Mount, it opened a training school for nurses, the Park View School of Nursing, graduating 55 nursing classes.
This year marks the 100th Commemorative Anniversary of the hospital and the 25th Anniversary of the scholarship endowment.
