Anthony "Tony" Thompson, CEO of Kwame Building Group and Barnes-Jewish Hospital board member, received a scholarship to the University of Kansas while he was a student there. Since then, he’s given to many scholarship programs in the area to pay it forward to a future generation of students.
With his scholarship support through The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital, more students at Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College are able to follow their calling and provide compassionate care to our friends and family throughout the community.
“I’m proud to support scholarships at Goldfarb School of Nursing,” Tony says. “I give because it creates opportunities for others to live a better, more fruitful life that contributes to our society and makes the world a better place. There are a lot of things that prevent people from pursuing their dreams, and I don’t want a few dollars to be one of them.”
