BLOOMINGTON – Ivy Tech Community College’s Bloomington campus named Anna Weigand, RN, IBCLC, its 2017 outstanding alumni award recipient. She is the recently former clinical director for labor and delivery at IU Health Bloomington Hospital and currently serves as labor and delivery nurse with Adventist Health Castle Medical Center in Kailua, Hawaii.

During her time at Ivy Tech, Weigand was a member of Phi Theta Kappa honor society, nursing club, and earned the outstanding student award in her program of study.

“Ivy Tech allowed Anna to transition to a career in nursing while raising two small children and working full time,” said Montra Reinhardt, department chair and associate professor, School of Nursing. “Anna implemented evidence-based change and positively influenced both staff and patients.”

Weigand was a member and instructor for the Association for Women’s Health and Neonatal Nurses. She taught fetal heart monitoring classes to nurses throughout the state of Indiana. She was member and served as the board president of United Way of Monroe County, where she spearheaded the board’s involvement in community outreach projects.
