John R. Patterson Scholarship
The John R. Patterson Scholarship Fund has been set up in loving memory of John “JP” Patterson. John loved immersing himself in nature, surrounding himself with music, and helping others. He started out as a music major (trumpet) but later changed his major and graduated with a degree in Spanish from Delta State University. Many years later he went back to school to become a nurse where he found his true vocation. He greatly enjoyed his time as a bilingual male nurse who favored the night shift and enjoyed helping people in their hours of greatest need.
The John R. Patterson Scholarship fund is a scholarship that will assist Delta State University men from the Mississippi Delta who have been admitted to the Nursing program. The John R. Patterson Scholarship Fund is an endowed scholarship that will continue to honor John’s memory for many, many years. Please consider making a donation to the John R. Patterson Scholarship Fund to allow John to continue to touch the lives of other men who share his passion for the field of nursing
