Richard E. Green Award for Individual Perseverance
This award was established by Richard E. Green in 2011 to recognize a student who successfully completed the Registered Nursing Program at Solano College. The student must have made extraordinary efforts to complete the Nursing Program under extreme difficulties such as monetary, or family situations which would in most cases cause the student to withdraw from the program. Through sheer determination, the student found ways to complete the program.
Richard Green was a faculty member at Solano Community College from 1966 – 1993. His wife, Carolyn Anne Green, was a faculty nursing instructor at Solano Community College. Mr. Green?s daughter, sister, and mother were all nurses.
