Dr. William and Shirley George
Florence L. and J.D. Bishop were farmers from Iowa who moved to California in 1979. The Bishops valued education and encouraged their children to pursue professional careers. Shirley George (daughter) worked as a Registered Nurse for 40 years, 33 of those with Good Samaritan Hospital in San Jose. The Georges created this scholarship in memory of the Bishops in the hopes that young people who are passionate about the nursing profession will have the opportunity to achieve their goals for generations to come.
