Ruth SellsHonoring Ruth's Legacy

As part of the WCTC centennial, a new scholarship fund, The Ruth Project, has been established to honor Ruth Sells' rich legacy of outstanding leadership and commitment to WCTC. This project will support WCTC Nursing students through scholarships and funding to improve the Nursing Skills Lab.

Sells was appointed to an advisory committee at WCTC in 1972, and two years later, she became the first woman appointed to the WCTC District Board, where she served for 14 years. She later joined the WCTC Foundation Board and served for 20 years until her passing in 2018. She was presented with an honorary WCTC Associate of Applied Science degree in 2012 for her generous service to the College.

Like WCTC, Sells would have celebrated her 100th birthday in 2023.
