September 16, 2014 – The Shorter University Student Nursing Association hosted a Glove Drive for Africa on Friday, Sept. 12, at Rome’s Chick-fil-A Dwarf House. The students collected unopened boxes of medical gloves, which will be sent to the areas of Africa hardest hit by the Ebola outbreak. Here, Shorter nursing students Kelsey Mathis, Hannah Martin, Emily Ridgeway, Erica Stinnett, Terann Reese, Victoria Morokhovets, Thahn Nguyen, and Lauren West pose for a picture with Greg Major, general manager and operator of the Dwarf House. The Glove Drive netted a donation of 70,430 pairs of gloves from Rome-based Big Time Products and a donation of several cases of gloves by Redmond Regional Medical Center.
