The Village Improvement Association (VIA) of Rehoboth Beach, a member of General Federation of Women’s Club (GFWC), presents the Mildred Gray scholarship each year to students at the Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing at Beebe Healthcare.

The students must be Sussex County residents and must have at least a B average in their nursing courses. This year’s recipients are senior nursing student Melissa Woody of Frankford and first-year nursing student Rebecca Arpie of Millsboro.

Carole Suchanek, VIA president, presented the scholarships and expressed the VIA’s support of the School of Nursing and its future graduates.
