P.A.S.S. Scholars celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month through art

The Providing Access and Support to Nursing Students (P.A.S.S.) scholarship program is an initiative funded by Dean Howard’s pilot grants and led by Kandyce Brennan, DNP, CNM and Lena Brokob, MSN, RN, along with program mentors Shielda Rodgers, PHD, RN and Lisa Woodley, PHD, MSN, RN, CNE, CHPN.

The P.A.S.S. scholarship program is committed to creating a nurturing environment that fosters inclusivity, not only within the School of Nursing but also throughout the entire university. The program achieves this by providing valuable faculty and peer mentorship to students.

In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, P.A.S.S. organized an art walk that showcased the incredible works of Hispanic artists from across the campus. The walk featured a visit to Abernathy Hall, home to the Carolina Latinx Center, which houses an inspiring mural by Mexican American artist, Cornelio Campos (pictured).

Looking ahead, on November 14th, the group is planning a service day event and is currently running a diaper and sock drive. If you’re interested in contributing to the drive, please contact Dr. Kandyce Brennan at heddrick@unc.edu or Lena Brokob at lenbro@email.unc.edu.
