I know our sympathies are with these families who have lost loved ones.
Good story in the paper about Virginia (Johnson) Shaw-Scherler. Virginia who is a certified nurse anesthetist, received the 2008 Alice Magaw Outstanding Clinical Practitioner Award from the Nurse Anesthetists (AANA) during the groups meeting recently in Minneapolis. A most prestigious award. Major congrats to Virginia. Believe Virginia is LHS '54?
