Family encourages others to join them in supporting PNW during annual Day of Giving
Robert Winston Milos, in memory of his benevolent parents, Dr. and Mrs. Robert J. Milos, has committed a $100,000 matching gift donation to the Purdue University Northwest College of Nursing.
The family is encouraging others to do the same to address the significant demands that will continue to grow in the health care field.
Bolstered by a family legacy of dedication to health care, the family made the decision to invest in preparing future nurses who will be a major part of the health and well being of residents in northwest Indiana and beyond.
“The College of Nursing is especially delighted to receive such a strong vote of confidence in our work preparing nurses to meet the needs of the greater community,” said Lisa Hopp, dean of the College of Nursing.
“Mr. Milos clearly understands that it can be challenging for students who have entered a rigorous program of study while meeting other financial obligations along the way. This gift will ease those burdens for many students.”
