Education: Reddy Bhrata

Reddy Bhrata of Kingman received a Living Legacy award from Samford University's Ida V. Moffett School of Nursing during its 90th anniversary gala on Oct. 13. Bhrata was among 50 honorees selected "for the impact they have had on the mental, physical and spiritual well-being of others," said nursing Dean Nena F. Sanders, adding that they have perpetuated a legacy of academic excellence, caring, compassion and service around the world in order to make a significant impact on humanity. That legacy stems from the lasting influence of the nursing school's namesake, the late Ida V. Moffett. The 50 award recipients all hold degrees from the School of Nursing or its forerunner, Birmingham Baptist Hospital. They represent a variety of specialties within the nursing profession, entrepreneurship and missions.
