Ware Nursing Scholarship Established

Monday, June 8, 2009

The University of West Georgia announces the creation of the Peter Woodhouse Ware Graduate Nursing Scholarship, established by Dr. Laurie Jowers Ware in memory of her husband, Peter Woodhouse Ware. The scholarship will benefit graduate students in the UWG School of Nursing’s Master of Science in Nursing program.

“Peter had a great appreciation for the nursing profession, and he understood the world of nursing as it was lived by those he knew and loved,” said Ware, professor and assistant dean of the School of Nursing. “Peter especially supported continued education, so I believe he would be pleased to be remembered in this way.”

Peter Ware of Carrollton worked for Southwire Company for 32 years in the Southwire Continuous Rod (SCR) System Department. According to his wife, he was respected worldwide for his breadth of knowledge and ability to communicate about the SCR System. He held several patents and received numerous awards at Southwire, including recognition as the Roy Richards Engineer of the Year in 1985.

Peter Ware held a master’s degree in business administration from UWG’s Richards College of Business. He also graduated from The Georgia Institute of Technology with a degree in mechanical engineering. He was a registered professional engineer and a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the Wire Association International.

To be eligible for the scholarship, students must have an overall grade point average of 3.0 or better. Students must also meet or exceed the University of West Georgia’s academic standards throughout the duration of his or her scholarship.
