LOGAN – Utah State University Eastern nursing students are honoring a fellow classmate at this week’s graduation ceremony April 27. Penny Eleazar passed away suddenly earlier this year. She was an international student who had lived with her adoptive grandparents in Price while she attended school.

“Penny was a great student who contributed much to the program,” said Nikkie King, USU Director of Nursing in Price. “Her classmates felt it was important to honor her memory and help in any way they could.”

There will be a tribute to her life during the ceremony and the students will present additional funds they have collected to the family. They will present her adoptive grandparents with a picture that all of her classmates signed.

The nursing students also all donated to help defer the cost of returning her body to her home in the Philippines.
