Nursing endowment honors former student

Oklahoma Christian University held a public reception Wednesday to honor Rebecca Stafford and celebrate the support for a nursing endowment in her name. 

Rebecca, a former OC student, lost her three-year battle with cancer on March 10, 2012 – two months shy of her 21st birthday.

The accompanying video includes comments from Rebecca's parents, Barry and Tonda Stafford, OC nursing student Tiffany Richey, and OC representatives Will Blanchard and Linda Fly.
