United gives $3 million gift to Abilene nursing school

The Texas Tech School of Nursing in Abilene received a big gift on Wednesday.

United Supermarkets handed the facility a check for $300,000 to expand the School of Nursing there. The gift was part of a $3 million dollar commitment made by United a couple years ago to support the School of Nursing and establish endowed scholarship programs.

Just this month, the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center opened a new School of Nursing building in Abilene in partnership with the Hedrick Health System there.

There are currently 100 students enrolled in the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center School of Nursing program in Abilene.
