Baltimore County, Md. – Norman J. McCullough, producer of instructional media for CCBC Essex Library Media Services and professional photographer, presented a check for $500 to the Student Nursing Association at The Community College of Baltimore County, Essex (CCBC Essex) in tribute to the wonderful nursing care given to his wife, Darlene, who died in May after a short illness. Darlene Dawson McCullough was an award-winning professional photographer who with her husband owned Greystone Photographics in White Hall. Although their photography practice ran the gamut from portraits to weddings, their passion was underwater photography and they have had their photographs published by National Geographic.

“I hope that whatever they [Student Nursing Association] do with the money will help them to make their job a little easier,” McCullough commented.

The check was presented at the Nov. 9 Board of Trustees meeting held on the Catonsville campus. McCullough’s presentation to the Board, which was very personal and moving, chronicled the events from his wife’s diagnosis in February to her death in May. He served as her primary care provider in the early stages of her illness. His gift was restricted to the Student Nursing Association at CCBC Essex as his thanks to those nurses who cared for Darlene in her final hours.

“I want to thank Norm on behalf of the School of Health Professions and the CCBC Essex Student Nurses Association,” remarked Dean Carol Eustis. “His gift means so much because his tragedy touched us all.”
