Recognition for Student Nurse Penny Scarpelli

Thursday, April 22, 2010


Kathy Swanson, President of Winnie Palmer Hospital, came to Valencia’s West Campus a few weeks ago to publicly recognize nursing student Penny Scarpelli, in front of a class full of fellow students and Valencia faculty for the way she handled a tragic case. She was a hero that day to a grieving family. The recognition was a touching moment captured on this YouTube video. Penny embodies the dedication and compassion that fuels someone to study this most rigorous of fields.
