Eleanor Wade Custer School of Nursing Dean Kathryn M. Ganske, Ellen Custer Morgan and Linda Custer Russell honored the school’s namesake on May 20, as they unveiled a portrait of Eleanor Wade Custer during the Nursing Alumni Social.
The nursing school bears Miss Custer’s name. She was instrumental in providing both advice and financial support to Shenandoah. Her legacy has had a lasting impact through the establishment of the Eleanor Wade Custer Nursing Endowment and the Eleanor Wade Custer Lecture Series.
Miss Custer’s portrait will hang in the dean’s suite as a reminder of her dedication and support of nursing.
