Learn More about Kathy!

Thank you for visiting our site. It is a tremendous honor to have my Mom, Kathleen Ann Smith, celebrated through this scholarship for a nurse practitioner student at the University of North Georgia (UNG). Teaching nurses was her life dedication, and through this scholarship, her years of service and love for the field can live on. Mom was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease and Frontal Temporal Dementia at a young age, and passed away on December 15, 2013. We have created a video capturing her spirit and demonstrating the values through which she lived her life. Each year, a UNG nurse practitioner student will be selected as the recipient of the scholarship and award.   

On behalf of Kathy's entire family, friends and colleagues, we thank you for the love and support. -Ashley M. Pruett, daughter of Kathleen Ann Smith
