Trevor Johnson and Dr. Karen Johnson-Brennan

Philip Derf was a student in our nursing program at SF State from 1990-1994 who was known as an extraordinary asset to his fellow classmates. His commitment to public service touched many of the faculty and students. Sadly, he passed away before completing the program. In his memory, it has become a tradition SF State School of Nursing that each graduating class chooses one classmate from amongst its ranks to receive the honorary award aptly titled the Philip Derf Award.

This semester, the recipient of Fall 2016 Philip Derf Service Award is Trevor Johnson. Dr. Karen Johnson-Brennan presented the award at the Pinning Ceremony on December 16.

Please join us in congratulating Trevor Johnson!
