MITCHELL — Dakota Wesleyan University nursing students attended the Nursing Student Association of South Dakota convention in Aberdeen recently. One DWU student won a prestigious award while she and two others were named to the 2013 state board.

Sara Deinert, a Bachelor of Science nursing student from Mount Vernon, won the Naoma Jackson Nursing Student Leadership and Action Award, which is given in memory of Naoma Jackson, a nursing student who was fatally injured while a student nurse. Deinert entered a 500-word essay that garnered her the award which is given to a nursing student who has strong leadership and educational goals and is dedicated to overcoming obstacles in order to become a nurse. This is the second year in a row that a DWU student has been honored this award.
