An Evening with the Stars, the September 28 gala event honoring the stars of Hopkins Nursing, will welcome one more Baltimore star to its program.

Former WJZ anchor and reporter Adam May, now a national correspondent with new cable network Al Jazeera America’s America Tonight program, will serve as the Master of Ceremonies for the night’s award ceremony.

While at WJZ, May, who in 2006 was named the “Best Live Reporter” for the Mid-Atlantic region by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, told many of the stories of nurses at the Johns Hopkins hospitals and the School of Nursing.  

“I’m looking forward to once again being with so many of the friends I made while working as a Baltimore reporter,” May noted. “And this is an opportunity to catch up on the latest news at the top U.S. hospitals and nursing school.”   

The annual Evening with the Stars, to be held in the Anne M. Pinkard Building and courtyard at the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing, shines the spotlight on nurses voted by their peers and supervisors for a starring role as Johns Hopkins’ best. New this year is the “Boulevard of Stars” where colleagues, former patients, friends, and families have honored their favorite nurse, faculty member, mentor, or nursing student as a member of the Hopkins galaxy of stars.  

Adding to the stars theme, throughout the evening, guests will have the chance to walk--not a mile, but perhaps the length of a hallway--in a nursing student’s shoes. Through entertaining and informative “hands-on” demonstrations, displays, re-enactments, and simulation labs, all will have the opportunity to play the roles of a future star and learn how Hopkins nurses become the “best of the best.”
