The Collins duo created the Todd and Janelle Collins Nurse Aide Scholars Program.

“The nurse’s aide program is the first rung on that career ladder, and Janelle and I wanted to help people launch their careers,” said Todd Collins.

The program will give full-tuition scholarships for five recipients starting this fall and an additional stipend for students to work part-time while enrolled.
