Special Notes

Zelda and Lloyd's son Jerry created this scholarship to help students who help others. Jerry's preference is to give a gift to individuals who have a desire to give back through their passion for nursing. Jerry is a biology major who graduated in 1967. He worked throughout his life doing research primarily in the entomology field. Jerry credits his mother Zelda for motivating him to attend UW-Eau Claire, which helped him throughout his life both personally and professionally.

Zelda was a nurse in the Greenwood, Wisconsin area and Jerry would like to help UW-Eau Claire nursing students to be able to minimize their tuition costs through this scholarship. Jerry would like this scholarship to go to students who share the same desire his mother had to help others through their passion for nursing.

Thank You Recipients should write a thank you note addressed to Jerry Longridge and send it in care of the UW-Eau Claire Foundation.
