Nawal Al-harazi and Dillon Meng Receive Philip Derf Service Award

Friday, May 26, 2017

Philip Derf was a student in our nursing program at SF State from 1990-1994 who was known as an extraordinary asset to his fellow classmates. His commitment to public service touched many of the faculty and students. Sadly, he passed away before completing the program. In his memory, it has become a tradition SF State School of Nursing that each graduating class chooses one classmate from amongst its ranks to receive the honorary award aptly titled the Philip Derf Award. This semester, the recipients of Spring 2017 Philip Derf Service Award are Nawal Al-harazi, BSN, and Dillon Meng, SF State/Sequoia BSN. Larry Vitale presented the award during to Nawal and Sheri Sassarini presented the award to Dillon during the Pinning Ceremony on May 22nd, at McKenna Theatre.

Please join us in congratulating Nawal and Dillon!
