Raytown South Alumna Receives MU Nursing Scholarship
By Sarah Clinton

Lydia Todd, Raytown,recently received the Annette McClanahan Harrison Endowed Nursing Scholarship for the fall 2014 semester. The award is given to undergraduate students enrolled in the University of Missouri Sinclair School of Nursing.

“I would like to thank Dr. Charles Canter and his family for this generous award, which will help me achieve my goals as a nursing student,” Todd said. “After completing my bachelor’s degree, I plan to obtain my Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) and become a pediatric nurse practitioner. Ultimately, I want to empower children and families by educating them about illness and health.”

Todd, a junior majoring in nursing at MU, is a 2012 graduate of Raytown South High School. She is the daughter of Michael and Glee Ann Todd. She currently serves as a teaching assistant at MU and coaches for Girls on the Run, an organization that pairs girls in Columbia with female mentors who promote physical and mental health through running, teamwork and building positive relationships.

MU is the largest and oldest public university west of the Mississippi River and is the flagship university for the state of Missouri.
