Lone Star College Tomball Nursing Endowments

Nursing Endowments Help Others

Through The Ryan Paul Whitaker Memorial Foundation, 43 nursing scholarships have been granted. In 2018, Ms. Whitaker will donate 5 more nursing scholarship endowments which will provide 6 scholarships a year to nursing students in perpetuity in memory of Ryan Whitaker. It is the goal of the Foundation to give out six nursing endowment scholarships per year following. This is provided by the Foundation in memory of Ryan Paul Whitaker and his last words to his mother that he wanted to become a nurse to help others.


The endowments will be used to provide financial assistance to people in need in the following ways:

  • To support non-profit, Christian and/or Medical Ministries, Church ad mission projects and medical assistance and clinics to help people physically, medically, mentally and spiritually who are in need.
  • To support 501c3 philanthropic, medical and/or Christian-based projects and missions, churches and other non-profit programs whose main goal is to help those in need.
  • To provide financial assistance to non-profit schools, universities and seminaries to assist those desiring to become a medical professional with the goal of helping others through missions, spiritual training and healthcare education.

Testimonies from Scholarship Recipients

  • Thank you so much for awarding me out of many others I am sure qualified. I really and truly appreciate it. I cannot thank you enough for such a blessing and your generous contribution. I will continue to be forever grateful and in the future to come "take care of people!" Again, thank you and God bless. 
  • Your endowment creates opportunities for students to fulfill their dr4eams. The spring of 2017, Lone Star College hosted the largest graduating class to date with nearly 8,000 students earning a degree or certificate from one of our campuses. We applaud your role in helping our students achieve their goals. 
  • The scholarship you have provided to me is a wonderful blessing to have received on this long journey to become a nurse. The scholarship is yet another wonderful blessing and fit in my life. It has afforded me the opportunity to continue to follow my dream and because of it, I will continue to give my best not only to my education but also to the patients I will one day care for. Thank you again for your generous scholarship.
