A shining light, a patient advocate, an essay prompt ... and always a nurse first. @University of Virginia's first nursing graduate -- Mavis Ford Claytor (MSN `80, BSN `70) -- was honored at the annual Strong Men and Women in Virginia History program last evening. Ms. Claytor -- one of just 7 honorees from around the Commonwealth, and feted by Gov.

We are immensely proud to know you, Ms. Claytor, impressed by your trailblazing career in nursing, your singular grace, unflagging spirit and your colossal impact on young people today.
