WINNER

nursingMATILDA CHAVEZ
Phoenix College of Nursing

In 2008, Chavez wrote a grant that has funded more than $100,000 toward classrooms, labs and technology for nursing students. She was the driving force behind the restoration that turned a former residence on the Phoenix campus into a nursing lab, creating a new space that allowed for the expansion of the college’s nursing program to help meet the growing demand for nurses. The facility includes an innovative simulation lab, which has given students the opportunity to acquire hands-on experience and perfect their skills.
