Community: Jim Hutton Educational Foundation Scholarship

Award Amount

Jim Hutton ran a farm and ranch in Yuma County just east of Bonny Dam.  Later in his life, he required skilled nursing care both in his own home and in a nursing home.  He came to understand the value of excellent nursing care.  He knew that quality nurses came from quality secondary education programs, and he wanted to provide financial assistance to those individuals pursuing nursing education.  As a result, he established the Jim Hutton Education Foundation.
