Speaking at the award presentation which held on friday the 26th of June at the school premises, Nurse Jennifer Emelue a director with the organization spoke on the award, insisting that the scholarship award is not about Nursingworld Nigeria but about justina Ejelonu, who died while performing her professional responsiblities to a client. The client who sadly, was infected with the deadly ebola virus. According to Nurse Jennifer, the Monthly scholarship award aims at putting Justinas' name in the lime light in recognition of the supreme price she paid to save nigeria from an Ebola virus outbreak. Finally, she appealed to the school principal to encourage her students to key into the activities of Nursingworld Nigeria.
The School principal Mrs Akinde expressed suprise that nurses could do this on thier own without any corporate sponsorship. According to her, even though they are exposed to many scholarship offers at LUTH, there is need for more people to help and assist students because the process is expensive and they need money to accomplish thier goals of a career in Nursing. She expresed happeiness and was impressed at the awards, She prayed God to continue to bless the organization to be able to promote this legacy they have started
In appreciation, Nwoko Ijeoma thanked the Nursingworld team. On how she felt about winning the award, she said "at first i didnt believe it but then i went online to apply.
