Shawn Mohr Passion for Nursing Scholarship



"Creating Mohr Nurses with $33"



An open letter from Ken Miller:


My nephew, Shawn Mohr, was a really good kid. Yes, I guess you can say that I am biased; and proud to be. In August of 2001, Shawn graduated Magna Cum Laude from Texas A&M University as the class of 2000 with a degree in Kinesiology. He then worked for about 4 years at St. Joseph Hospital in Bryan, Texas in the cardiac rehabilitation unit as an exercise physiologist. This prompted him to get into nursing. At this time, Texas A&M was offering an accelerated nursing course in Corpus Christi. Shawn went through this 18 month course and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a 4.0 GPA in December of 2007. In February of 2008, Shawn was hired by The Methodist Hospital in Houston. By 2011, he was part of an elite team of operating room nurses working in the Fondren OR of the DeBakey Heart Center. He was making so much progress in such a short period of time.



Shawn loved nursing and was never late for work. On June 22, 2011, he never showed up for work. He had died in his sleep at home from an enlarged heart. He was 33 years young. After spending most of his adult years helping others fight heart disease, he would succumb to the silent killer with no sign and no warning; the irony of it all. Shawn had a true passion for family, nursing, sports, Texas music, and Texas A&M. He is now buried in College Station in the Aggie Field of Honor with a view of Kyle Field between two oak trees. He is the only child of my sister, Janice, and had yet to marry or have children, so we wanted to try to do something so that his name can live on through nursing and Texas A&M.



In November of 2013 we started a scholarship fund with the College of Nursing at Texas A&M University. It is called the "Shawn Mohr Passion for Nursing Scholarship" and our first goal is to build it into an endowment with donation of $33; Shawn's age. We have 5 years to reach the endowment stage. At this point, the scholarship and Shawn's name will live on forever through nursing and Texas A&M. In the 2 years in putting this together, it has developed into a three-fold objective:



1. To build this scholarship over the coming years with donations of $33. All donations are made through the Texas A&M Foundation and are tax deductible. For those who need a viable tax deduction, you can certainly donate "Mohr" than $33.


2. To let as many future nurses know about the College of Nursing at Texas A&M and the scholarships that are available for them.


3. to create awareness of the dangers of heart disease attacking our young adults.



I have developed a web page for all of this, www.shawnmohr.org.

Stark Galleries, 1st Floor of the MSC, TAMU, College Station
COLLEGE STATION- The J. Wayne Stark Galleries at Texas A&M University are proud to introduce their newest exhibition American Art Nouveau, opening October 12. This exhibition (in conjunction with Inspired by Nature: Graphic Design in the Art Nouveau Period) was made possible by a major loan from the collection on John and Cindy Delulio. J. Wayne Stark Galleries will be hosting a Gallery Talk by John and Cindy Delulio on Thursday October 23 at 5:30 pm.



Spanning from the late 19th to the early 20th century, the Art Nouveau Period spread throughout Europe and beyond in decorative arts as well as architecture. Due to its spread geographically, a number of styles emerged known by various names such as the Glasgow Style or Jugenstil in German. Art Nouveau centered on modernizing design and banishing historical hierarchal notions of art that viewed so-called liberal arts such as sculpture and painting as superior to craft-based decorative arts.



The Art Nouveau style focused on combining from both the unruly elements of nature and ordered, angular precision of geometry. The Style spread across Europe to America in the 1880s mainly through ceramics and glass designs, allowing American Nouveau to pull from different countries’ styles including Japan and Germany. Nouveau artists often took inspiration from different natural subjects such as deep-sea organisms. Nouveau strived to blend the lines between organic and inorganic as well as fine art and decorative art. Although Art Nouveau gave way to Art Deco in the 1920s, it experienced a revival in the 1960s and led to modernism.



The J. Wayne Stark Galleries are located at the northeast corner of the Memorial Student Center on the Texas A&M University campus. Gallery hours are Tues. - Fri. 9am - 8pm; Sat. & Sun. 12 - 6pm. Admission is free. For more information about this exhibition and others at the Stark Galleries, please call (979) 845-6081 or visit our web site at http://uart.tamu.edu/stark

Art Nouveau centered on modernizing design and banishing historical hierarchal notions of art that viewed so-called liberal arts such as sculpture and painting as superior to craft-based decorative arts.



An important facet of the Art Nouveau style was the fusion of nature and geometry that united organic, flowing forms with the sharp angular contours of geometry. This exhibit will focus on these expressed themes, showing how this fusion created what would now be equivalent to graphic design. Although Art Nouveau gave way to Art Deco in the 1920s, it experienced a revival in the 1960s and led to modernism.

All Day

George Bush Presidential Library and Museum
George Bush was a successful and pioneering Texas oilman, first on land and then offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. As a tribute to his role in the development and use of the innovative independent leg offshore jack-up rig Scorpion launched by LeTourneau in 1956, the exhibit tells the story of offshore drilling. It focuses on the history, development and future of offshore drilling, with an emphasis on the work of George Bush, emerging technologies and ongoing research at Texas A&M University.



With Shell as title sponsor and supporting sponsorships from Ensco, Schlumberger and Move Resource Group, the exhibit covers all aspects of the search for oil offshore, with a special look at the geology of finding oil, focusing on exploration of the Gulf of Mexico. Industry pioneers recount their personal experiences. Visitors will be taken from start to finish — developing the "play" to platform production — via an interactive display.



A video wall highlights careers and life on board a rig. See models of the various rigs, platforms and supply vessels that are used in the industry, and pieces of drilling equipment. Additional exhibits feature Smart Gulf and Scientific Research from Texas A&M University.



Expertise for the exhibit has been provided by our partnerships with The Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig Museum; Texas A&M University through the College of Geosciences, Petroleum Engineering, Integrated Ocean Drilling Program, Department of Oceanography and Offshore Technology Research; LeTourneau University and PennWell.
