Jimmy and Kim Pettiet present a check establishing the Lená Pettiet Memorial Nursing Scholarship to TVCC Vice President of Institutional Advancement and TVCC Foundaion Director Kristen Bennett, TVCC Board President Ray Raymand and TVCC President Dr. Jerry King.
The family of Lená Pettiet donated $40,000 to the Trinity Valley Community College Foundation Tuesday to establish a nursing scholarship in their daughter’s name. Pettiet was a 2010 graduate of TVCC’s Associate Degree in Nursing (RN) program who died in May from injuries sustained in a Van Zandt county collision in February. TVCC Health Science instructors and former classmates paid tribute to Lená’s compassion, sense of humor and dedication to the nursing profession.
 
“The Lená Pettiet Memorial Nursing Scholarship will benefit TVCC nursing students for generations,” said TVCC President Dr. Jerry King. “We are so grateful to the Pettiet family for making this scholarship possible.”
 
In a surprise presentation, the first $1,000 scholarship was awarded to TVCC nursing student Randi Stuard of Canton, one of Pettiet’s friends who helped organizing fundraising to establish the scholarship.
