BCCC names nursing lecture hall in honor of Lisa Long

June 5th, 2021

The Beaufort County Community College has dedicated its nursing lecture hall in honor of Lisa Long. The naming acknowledges a new generous donation to the BCCC Foundation from Ms. Long’s sister Dr. Laura L. Staton and her husband Col (Ret.) Bill Staton. The Lisa Long Lecture Hall hosts senior nursing students as they seek their Associate Degree in Nursing.

Ms. Long dedicated her entire life to the care of all living creatures. As a child, she would nurse ill, injured, or abandoned animals back to health. At just 18, Ms. Long received her Associate Degree in Nursing from St. Luke’s College of Nursing in Kansas City, Mo. She found her calling working with the most seriously ill patients as an intensive care and cardiac care nurse for 21 years and 5 years as a palliative and hospice nurse.
