Blanche Mikhail, a nursing professor at Cal State Bakersfield and a Fulbright senior scholar, died Thursday of cancer. She was 58.
Mikhail, who retired from CSUB in June, received both local and international recognition for her research and teaching in the nursing field.
She received the Fulbright Senior Scholar Award, which sent her to Jordan during the 1999-2000 academic year to do research and consulting.
In 2001, she was recognized as Kern Registered Nurse of the Year in education.
"She was a very, very loyal and hardworking gal," said Mary Jo Kasselman, a retired nursing professor from CSUB. "She always was a wonderful role model for students. She always had time for them."
Mikhail was born in Alexandria, Egypt and was educated both in Egypt and the United States. She received her doctoral degree from Boston University in 1984.
She joined the faculty at CSUB in September 1991 and was granted professor emeritus status this year at commencement.
Mikhail was known as a servant of God in her church, San Demiana Orthodox Church.
She was a dedicated Sunday school teacher, said Lydia Mikhail, who is no relation.
"She loved God from her heart," Lydia Mikhail said. "She didn't have any children, but a lot of people in the church considered her as a big sister or a mom."
Mikhail is survived by her husband, Michael J. Galiouby, a sister and nieces.
