On September 22, alumni, family and friends gathered at the Big House in Wendover, Ky., to celebrate the annual Frontier Nursing University Homecoming. The weekend featured many special moments including a district tour, formal tea, and a cookout with live bluegrass music under the stars! As always the highlight of Homecoming weekend is the Awards Ceremony held in the Big House living room where Mary Breckinridge looks on from her portrait over the many men and women who work daily to continue her vision.
