On Sept. 10, 2010 nursing students, their families, friends, faculty and staff gathered in the auditorium in Moore Hall, Auburn University Montgomery.  The purpose of the gathering was two-fold:  To recognize the accomplishments of the nursing students at the university and to recognize the contributions of the donors who make the monetary awards possible. Lee Tinneny was among them.

Each year Lee travels from her home in South Carolina to Montgomery, Alabama to present the annual Christopher P. Tinneny Scholarship Award at AUM School of Nursing. The scholarship is awarded to a raising senior nursing student at the university who portrays the personal qualities which best exemplify her son Christopher’s characteristics of Caring, Humor and Joy.
