Two CHHS Nursing students were among those named as Bonner Leadership Scholars for the fall 2013. Lejla Mehmedovic and Jillian Weston are students in the School of Nursing.
The Bonner Leadership Scholar program at WKU is a program designed to assistant students who have experience serving in communities with their college education. WKU Bonner students dedicate ten hours a week (or 300 hours per academic year) to community service and training and enrichment. The Bonner students at WKU are selected based on their service experience and goals, as well as financial aid eligibility. In addition, Bonner students each participate in the Certificate in Citizenship & Social Responsibility.
This program is a Bonner Leader program part of a National Bonner Foundation network consisting of programs at more than 80 colleges and universities. The program at WKU is made possible through a partnership with WKU Enrollment Management and WKU Financial Assistance.
