NY ENA 911

Do you remember where you were on that fateful day?

As 9/11 approaches, we take a moment to remember that day…our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those who were lost that day…

“Never forget” is the phrase that has been heard around the world in reference to the 9/11 attacks. The New York ENA State Council created an academic scholarship with the ENA Foundation as a memorial to the bravery of the 9/11 rescue workers.

This scholarship is awarded annually to a rescue worker who is pursuing a professional career in nursing. Each year, the scholarship has been funded through the state council’s annual gift to the ENA Foundation’s State Challenge campaign.

We are close to reaching our goal of 100,000 dollars to endow the scholarship fund forever.

Our current amount is $91, 967…

Thank you for your generous support and for keeping alive the memory of those who sacrificed so much.

The NYS ENA Council.

P.S. Never forget our fellow first responder.
