R. Murray and Annabel Davis Jenks Endowed Professorship in Nursing Excellence
Support professorship in Nursing.
The Annabel Davis Jenks Endowed Professorship for Teaching and Research in Clinical Nursing Excellence is in recognition of Mrs. Annabel Jenks, a committed and caring nurse who had strong connections to the college in the 1970s and ‘80s. This professorship was made possible by a gift to the College of Nursing from the Thomas M. and Irene B. Kirbo Charitable Trust. The Kirbo Trust donated $600,000 to establish the professorship, which was eligible for state-matching funds. Mr. Murray Jenks, a trustee of the Kirbo Trust, was the husband of the late Annabel Jenks.
