Residents invited to support a TMHS grad pursuing nursing at event Friday at Elks
The Dr. Sandy Johnson Creamer Foundation is very pleased to announce a scholarship has been created with the primary purpose of providing scholarships to Tewksbury Memorial High School seniors who plan to continue their education in a post-secondary nursing program.
Many know Sandy Creamer for her work at the Tewksbury Senior Center. Sandy sits on the COA Board and plays an important role in helping our seniors lead active, healthy lives. Dr. Creamer has been a member of the Medical Reserve Corps for the past five years and has spent many hours giving Covid and flu vaccines to residents here and other communities. She recently started teaching Water Aerobics at the Billerica Boys and Girls Club and has been the author of the “An Apple a Day” medical column in the Senior Moments Newsletter.
Sandy is married with three adult children and six grandchildren; besides her family and friends, her true passion has been her nursing career. After training at Salem Hospital, she worked at St. John’s and then Saints Medical Center. She also worked several years at Dana Farber. Most of her career was in Oncology and, according to Sandy, “it has truly felt like God’s work.”
Sandy worked full time while expanding her education. After earning a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree from UMass Lowell, she then became a Nurse Practitioner. After a few years, she wanted to “achieve the highest degree possible in her beloved nursing,” so she went on to Boston College and earned a PhD at age 60.
Education has been important to Sandy, and now she and her family want to give back and assist future nurses on their journey to a fulling and lasting career, like she has enjoyed over these past years.
Sandy is known for her kind heart, infectious laughter, and unwavering determination. She always puts others before herself and is always willing to lend a helping hand.
Please join Dr. Creamer, her family and her friends on Friday, March 24, at 7p.m. at the Tewksbury Elks on South St. in Tewksbury and help a very deserving Tewksbury graduate on his or her way to a rewarding vocation in nursing. See more details in the flyer, below.
