Cheyla’s Legacy of Love and Resilience

Posted on Mon, Nov 19, 2018

 

NMC Scholarship Fund Launched in Cheyla Pettett’s Memory

“A strong spirit never dies.”

Stephanie Pettett spoke these words while accepting her daughter Cheyla’s honorary diploma from Nebraska Methodist College. She spoke with a mother’s boundless love, pride, and grief.

Cheyla Pettett, a member of NMC’s inaugural Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) class, would have fulfilled her dream and graduated from the program this year—if she had lived. Tragically, 29-year-old Cheyla was struck down in a car-pedestrian accident days before classes were to start in August 2016.

The impact of Cheyla’s remarkable life continues to resonate with those lucky enough to have known her. And with countless others Cheyla will never meet.

Forever a member of the NMC family, Cheyla continues to make a difference. She has given the gift of life through organ donation, and, with the launch of an NMC scholarship fund in her memory, Cheyla is opening a door for other students with her passion and resilience.

NMC Alum Anne Boatright Transforms Care for Nebraska’s Victims of Sexual Assault

Posted on Mon, Apr 23, 2018

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, a time to raise awareness and to celebrate progress made possible by special people like NMC alum Anne Boatright (MSN, 2015).

A decade ago, when Anne Boatright, MSN, RN, SANE, FNE, was just starting her nursing career, she began to understand the terrible impact of sexual assault.

“I was working in a hospital’s emergency department at the time and saw a void in the E.D. care,” said Anne. “No one was trained in sexual assault.”

Undaunted by the complexity of the problem, Anne stepped forward to learn more, do more and forge solutions for those whose lives are touched by sexual assault. She focused first on the unmet needs of victims and then on the needs of medical responders, law enforcement and entire communities.

It’s a journey that has earned Anne national recognition for her transformational leadership, as well as her current position as State Forensic Nursing Coordinator within the Criminal Bureau of the Nebraska Attorney General’s Office.
