Scholar Spotlight with Logan Hassler

This week’s Scholar Spotlight features Logan Hassler from Hagerstown, Maryland. Logan is a student in the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program and is a recipient of the Scott Beard and Alan Gibson Endowed Scholarship for Music and Nursing. This scholarship was created to honor the memory of Dr. Scott Beard, Shepherd University’s provost and vice president for academic affairs. Efforts to establish the named fund were led by Alan Gibson, Dr. Beard’s life partner of 31 years, with contributions from alumni, friends, colleagues, and students.
“Shepherd University has provided me with countless opportunities to achieve my professional goals, not only as an undergraduate student, but now as a graduate student,” said Logan. “The education that I have received has prepared me for the challenges faced as a front-line worker and will continue to guide me as I transition into the family nurse practitioner role. I did not anticipate receiving such an award, but I am extremely grateful that I was selected; this funding will help me and my family as I prioritize continuing my education in the field of nursing. Thank you for selecting me and for your generous contribution.”
