Emma Butt of Sharpsburg has been named winner of the Servant’s Heart Award by Freed-Hardeman University.
The award is presented to a senior nursing student for caring and compassion.
Butt was among five Freed-Hardeman seniors honored for “maintaining a good Christian attitude along with leadership, perseverance, compassion and academic achievement,” according to the university.
Honorees received Bibles along with an animal figurine representing the spirit of their awards.
FHU officials say they held the awards ceremony earlier than planned in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Last year, Freed-Hardeman’s bachelor of science in nursing cohort had a 100 percent pass rate on the NCLEX, outperforming the state and national averages on the test administered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing.
