The King Carter Chapter #5 Order of the Eastern Star is providing support to students in the RCC Nursing program through a recent $500 donation to the RCC Educational Foundation, Inc.

Chapter Treasurer Martha Hancock presented the contribution to Rappahannock Community College President Elizabeth H. Crowther on August 4 on behalf of Worthy Matron Bonnie Pettey and Worthy Patron Lawrence Petty.

The Nursing program discretionary fund is an emergency fund that helps with expenses associated with the nursing program.  This could include books, fees, uniforms or clinical costs.

The King Carter Chapter #5 Order of the Eastern Star was chartered in 1937.  The members of the Order of the Eastern Star are dedicated women and men who sincerely reflect the spirit of fraternal love and the desire to work together for good. It gives them the opportunity to give a part of their time to many projects that benefit mankind.
