Evalee Kunkel, a dearly missed and multi-talented Clinical Assistant Professor in our College, passed away on November 4, 2012. She was an alumnus of our undergraduate and graduate nursing programs and taught with us from 2006-2012. She was honored at her funeral service with a Nightingale Tribute, which included the reading by Dr. Susan Peck of the poem, "She was There", and the nurses in attendance at the service presenting white roses to Evalee.
To honor the memory of Evalee, the faculty and staff of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences have created the Evalee Kunkel Memorial Scholarship. Criteria for the scholarship will be developed to recognize her dedication to the students and to nursing.People wishing to contribute to her scholarship can make checks out to the UWEC Foundation and indicate the "Evalee Kunkel Memorial Scholarship" in the memo line. They can be sent to the College of Nursing and Health Sciences or directly to the UW-Eau Claire Foundation Office (Schofield Hall 214, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, Eau Claire, WI 54702-4004).
