Dr. Carol J. Chrisman

Carol Chrisman grew up in Ashland County and was a lady who cared much for her community and for the people in it. She was very proud of her profession of nursing—earning baccalaureate, masters and doctoral degrees. She served as an acute nurse and a school nurse before moving into nursing education and ultimately becoming the Dean of the School of Nursing at Ashland University. Dr. Chrisman was particularly interested in public/community health nursing, and held memberships and offices at the national, state, and local levels. Dr. Chrisman passed away in 1998.

Carol’s desire to encourage Ashland County nurses and students to continue their education led to her planning the Carol J. Chrisman Memorial Nursing Scholarship. The primary goal of the scholarship fund is to assist students on either a full or part-time basis to continue their education toward a baccalaureate, masters, or doctoral degree in nursing.

Dr. Chrisman was a special lady who cared very much for others. Her wisdom to establish this scholarship will help nursing students, into perpetuity, complete their education and subsequent service to others.
