Jennifer Hawke-Petit Memorial Scholarship Fund
On July 23, 2007, Jennifer Hawke-Petit was brutally murdered in her home in Cheshire, Connecticut. Her daughters Hayley and Michaela also perished that day. Only her husband, Dr. William Petit managed to survive a vicious beating and house fire. Jennifer was our friend, classmate and fellow 1980 graduate of Sharon General Hospital School of Nursing. It is her husbands wish that if there is anything to be gained by the senseless deaths of my beautiful family, its for all of us to go forward with the inclination to live with a faith that embodies action: help a neighbor, fight for a cause, love your family. Inspired by his words, we have established The Jennifer Hawke-Petit Memorial Scholarship through the Shenango Valley Foundation in Sharon, Pennsylvania. An annual scholarship will benefit a nursing student who has financial need, satisfactory academic performance, and an interest in the care and welfare of children. Scholarship recipients will be selected by the faculty of the Sharon Regional Health System School of Nursing, formerly the Sharon General Hospital School of Nursing. Giving limited to the Shenango Valley area, PA.
