A Holiday Message from Our Alumni Association President

by Karen Jenkins December 3, 2020

Dear fellow alumni,

WOW! What a year it has been. As healthcare workers, we have risen to meet the challenges and demands of the COVID pandemic. First and foremost, I want to say THANK YOU! Thank you for all your sacrifices this past year as you worked tirelessly to care for our community. THANK YOU for all the time you put others first to make sure they were cared for.

As healthcare professionals, it is so natural for us to take care of others before taking care of ourselves. However, if we want to be our best self, we need to take care of ourselves. Taking care of ourselves first is not being selfish; it is being wise. We must remember to take care of our own self first, so that we can be at our best and provide exceptional care to others.

This holiday season, give yourself a gift – the gift of selfcare. Whether it is some alone time reading a favorite book, taking time to exercise, or pampering yourself with some self-indulgent holiday shopping, you deserve it!! Enjoy!!

On behalf of PA College, we are so incredibly grateful for the generosity we have seen from our alumni this past year. I hope during this season of giving, you will consider joining me and add the PA College Alumni Association Scholarship Fund to your “gift list.”

Have a wonderful and safe holiday season!

Take care,

Tina Martin ’86, DNP, RN, NE-BC

Alumni Association President
