Congratulations to nursing majors Andrea Zuluaga ’21 and Jenae Fernandes ’21. The two were recently awarded a 2019 Projects for Peace in which they will receive a $10,000 grant to make their proposed project a reality this summer.
Zuluaga and Fernandes’ project centered around the community rebuilding effort of San Pio X Parish in Itagüí, Colombia.
Projects for Peace was the vision of philanthropist Kathryn W. Davis on the occasion of her 100thbirthday. Until her death at 106 in 2013, Mrs. Davis was intent on advancing the cause of peace and sought to motivate tomorrow's promising leaders by challenging them to find ways to "prepare for peace."

In addition to hosting the students, NDMU’s Morrissy students planned events and learned about Japanese culture.
