Angela Clore Memorial Scholarship
This scholarship was established by Angela’s family in honor of and in loving memory of her. She was born December 17th, 1976 and was the youngest of her parent’s three daughters. She was a lifelong resident of Fauquier County whom many friends and colleagues knew as “Angie.” Her smile could light up a room and her laughter was contagious. She cared deeply for her family and her job. At the time of her passing on May 2nd, 2016, she left behind a husband and two children, a son and a daughter. As her family, we understand firsthand the struggles and demands of the nursing school program.
Angela went through the public schools system of Fauquier, and graduated from Fauquier High School in the year 1994. She attended George Mason University for one semester. She started working in local medical offices, and while working at Piedmont Family Practice she made the decision to become a nurse. She enrolled in the nursing program here at the College and graduated with honors and was pinned in May of 2007. She went to work for Fauquier Hospital and became a RN when she passed her state board in June on the first attempt. She proved to be well suited for the profession and had an innate passion for it. While working at the hospital, she also felt the need to better herself and her skills, and she applied herself to working for and receiving a BSN degree in 2013 from University of Phoenix through their on-line program. She wasn’t through yet, because she had plans for and had started working toward her Master’s degree in nursing. Angela was well known for her dedication and skills at the hospital, her serving on various committees, and volunteering for preceptor duty. She even volunteered as nurse for her son’s Boy Scout troop. Angela was a very passionate and dedicated nurse.
