Mary Florence Gleeson Memorial Nursing Endowed Scholarship
The Mary Florence Gleeson Memorial Endowed Nursing Scholarship was established in 2013 by Gene Gleeson, 2003 RCC Alumnus of the Year, to honor his mother Mary Florence (Love). Mary received her RN from Omaha Methodist Hospital in 1932 and worked early in her career as a private duty nurse and as a stewardess for Union Pacific Railroad (for which an RN degree was a requirement) before marrying and moving to California. After raising five children, Mary returned to nursing and was active in the California Nurses Association and the Nightingale Club. This scholarship supports a continuing RN student at Riverside City College who has financial need.
