Thank to all our Gator Nursing alumni and friends who rose to the Linda Aiken Living Legend Challenge. All $10,000 that was raised will be matched by an anonymous donor to support the Linda Harman Aiken Professorship at the College of Nursing. Thank you for helping us honor Dr. Linda Aiken (BSN '64, MNSG '66) for being named an American Academy of Nursing Living Legend, nursing's highest honor.

Smith, who was named a Living Legend in 1996.
