HACC Alumnus Establishes Nursing Scholarship in Memory of Late Wife

Scholarship will help students achieve their goals


HARRISBURG, PA. – The Nursing Program at HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, began in 1969 with less than 30 students. Over 50 years later, the program enrolled more than 1,030 students in the spring 2022 semester, and has graduated thousands of nurses who serve Central Pennsylvania and beyond.
 
Many HACC students enroll in classes to provide their children with a better life and prove that college is possible. Debbi Miller was a single parent when she enrolled in the College’s Nursing Program. She graduated and worked in the field for more than 40 years until her death in March 2022. Mrs. Miller spent her life caring for and about other people.
 
Dan Miller, her husband and fellow HACC alumnus, and family have chosen to honor her memory by establishing the Deborah K. Levan “Debbi” Miller Memorial Nursing Scholarship Fund. Mr. Miller said, “The best teachers I ever had were the ones I had at HACC… HACC is a fine institution and I am glad for the opportunity to do Debbi's nursing scholarship fund through HACC.”
 
“HACC nursing students are amazing. There is no greater investment than in people – especially those who are trained to care for us medically. This new scholarship will help students achieve their dreams,” Linnie Carter, Ph.D. APR, HACC’s vice president of college advancement and executive director of the HACC Foundation, said.
 
The scholarship requires that students must:

  • Be enrolled in HACC’s Nursing Program
  • Have a minimum GPA of 2.5
  • Be enrolled part- or full-time at HACC
  • Demonstrate unmet financial need
  • Reside in one of the following counties: Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Juniata, Lancaster, Lebanon, Mifflin, Perry, Schuylkill or York
 
Preference will be given to single parents.
