BCLS Landscape Services Chief Visionary Officer Steven Cohen said….’While this project was small, it truly marks a special day in the history of the school of nursing and we are very proud that the VCU Facilities team asked us to be VCU Time Capsule Placement BCLS Landscape Servicesinvolved’

The prior day featured a lecture, time capsule dedication and the debut of a display in the school’s Heritage Room showcasing stories of six St. Philip School of Nursing alumnae. MCV School of Nursing founded the St. Philip School of Nursing in 1920 to educate African American women during segregation and to provide nursing care for patients in the St. Philip Hospital.

Another gala highlight was a silent auction of two original artworks and one print donated by Baxter Perkinson, D.D.S., a past rector of VCU and avid watercolorist. The print was titled “When Nursing Flowered” in honor of the school’s 125th anniversary. Proceeds from the silent auction went toward the VCU School of Nursing 125th Anniversary Scholarship.
