Read about a new Silver Lake College of the Holy Family Nursing Scholarship named after Franciscan Sister Marion Gillis.

Nursing education has been a part of the history of Holy Family College, now Silver Lake College of the Holy Family over the years. On August 13, 2015 the Wisconsin Board of Nursing approved Silver Lake College’s request for authorization to plan a new Nursing School in Wisconsin. The Program is expected to take one year for its planning and development to begin a freshman class in the fall of 2016.

    Congratulations! It’s wonderful to have a Nursing Program restored. There is a need for nurses and you can provide it is a Catholic environment and include the emphasis on the dignity of the human person. It’s great to name it after Sister Marion.
