Tejani Family Creates Two Endowments for Nursing
Drs. Sabira and Nasir Tejani


Dr. Sabira Tejani and Dr. Nasir Tejani have just committed to fund two Nursing Endowments, one for scholarships for nursing students, and the other for nursing student’s supplies.  “The Funding Our Future campaign is important to us,” said the Tejanis, “we want to support our nursing students now and long into the future.”

“Our nursing students will definitely benefit,” said Dean, Health Sciences, Nursing, Library and Learning and Academic Resources Paul Creason, “nursing programs are expensive to get through.  These new endowments will definitely ease some of the nursing financial burden. We truly appreciate this support.”

Paul Kaminski, LBCC Foundation Executive Director, who has known the Tejanis for close to 35 years, recalls how Dr. Sabira Tejani had delivered two of his children and Dr. Nasir Tejani was pediatrician to all three of his children.  “As soon as I arrived at the LBCC Foundation we began a conversation about student support,” said Kaminski, “I am so glad we were able to accommodate their wishes.”

The “Funding Our Future” Campaign is a comprehensive campaign aimed at celebrating the school’s 100-year anniversary in 2027, and creating enough financial support for students for the next 100 years.  To find out more how you can support this effort please contact Paul Kaminski at pkaminski@lbcc.edu or 562.537.8334.
