Sandra H. Friedman Liverman Memorial Scholarship Endowed with the Co-Lin Foundation

The Sandra H. Friedman Liverman Memorial Scholarship was recently endowed with the Copiah-Lincoln Community College Foundation by Liverman’s husband, Dr. Steven Liverman of Wesson. The scholarship will benefit a student on the Wesson campus wishing to pursue an education in nursing or medicine.

Sandra Liverman grew up in a “medical family,” where her father was a general practice physician in Wesson for 57 years and her mother and maternal grandmother were nurses. She married Dr. Steven Liverman, a family practice physician who served the Wesson community for 38 years before retiring in December 2021.

Liverman attended Wesson Attendance Center and graduated from Miami Beach Senior High School. She later attended Copiah-Lincoln Community College, Millsaps College, and the University of Southern Mississippi where she earned a bachelor’s degree in English in 1973. She also attended Jackson State University, New York University, and University of Mississippi School of Nursing before graduating from Mississippi College with a bachelor’s degree in nursing in 1978.

She took great interest in psychiatric nursing, patients’ rights, and curbing domestic violence. Liverman was also a strong advocate for children’s rights and welfare, and civil rights. She was a breastfeeding advocate and became a La Leche League Leader in Wesson and Brookhaven.

Always an avid reader with a penchant for books, education, and lifelong learning, Liverman homeschooled her children. The Livermans have two daughters, Dove Deustachio and Leaf Maggio, and four grandchildren.

“We are thrilled to offer this new scholarship to our students in memory of Sandra,” Foundation Executive Director Angela Furr said. “The Livermans have such a long legacy of meeting healthcare needs in Wesson, and that will continue through this scholarship.”
