More than 400 friends gathered in Birmingham last Saturday night to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Ida V. Moffett School of Nursing—and to celebrate the ways in which lives have been transformed through the work of the men and women who have served on the faculty and staff.  The centerpiece of the program was the recognition of “Living Legacy” awards for 50 outstanding graduates of the school.  As their stories were recounted, one by one, we gained an understanding of the extraordinary impact of this caring and courageous program, affiliated with Samford since 1973.  We thank God for these cherished colleagues, their students, alumni, and friends.

 The world is better because of the Ida V. Moffett School of Nursing.
