Thank you to all of the sponsors, players, committee members, trustees, faculty, staff, and students who helped to make the 21st Annual Scholarship Golf Classic a success. Your gifts help to provide much needed support for promising students, many of whom are the first in their family to attain a college degree. Brian Miller ’18, recipient of both a GCU-Meridian Health Nursing Scholarship and the Sr. Rosemary Jeffries, PhD, ’72 Scholarship, said “Without the generosity of Georgian Court, Meridian Health, and scholarship donors, I would not have had the opportunity to be standing here right now.”

Celebrating our Honorees
Georgian Court proudly honors Rosemary E. Jeffries, RSM, Ph.D., '72, president emerita, with the Joseph E. Buckelew Civic Service Award. During her 14-year term as president, Sister Rosemary shepherded Georgian Court through the process of changing from college to university status, which was awarded in 2004. GCU has seen some dramatic changes, including the transition to full coeducation, which integrated men into all classes, campus life, and NCAA Division II sports.
Our Corporate Service Award will be presented to Meridian Health which has consistently been rated among the top performing health systems in New Jersey for clinical quality and nationally is the recipient of the John M. Eisenberg Award for Patient Safety and Quality from The Joint Commission and the National Quality Forum. Meridian Health is recognized for patient care and nursing excellence, including being the first health system in the country to achieve Magnet recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center at all of its original hospitals. Meridian Health is a leading example of a corporation that exhibits the GCU Mercy core values and embodies the spirit of the teachings of the Sisters of Mercy.
