"Looking back at my student experiences over 40 years ago, I realize how little I knew about the legacies that Helen Beckley would leave to ISU and to nursing in Idaho. I did not fully understand how much having a mentor like Helen Beckley meant to a young college kid from rural Idaho. I have had a phenomenal nursing career and I owe much to her encouragement and guidance. Helen Beckley was kind enough to give me a chance at nursing, and I was fortunate enough to make it a success."Read more about the impact that Helen Beckley had on ISU at www.isu.edu/nursing/alumni.shtml
