The Foundation awarded $11,000 in scholarships to ten deserving students seeking to advance their education in the healthcare field. The scholarship recipients are: Devita Cota, Jennifer Martinez, Danielle McMath, Rosaura Meza, Bunny Perez, Mindy Presser, Rocio Rosales, Alissa Tortorelli, Rosie Valencia and Beth Zgragen.
Alisa Tortorelli was the recipient of the first annual Hazel Hawkins Hospital Physicians’ Scholarship. Mindy Presser was awarded the Fahy/Fisher Scholarship for a student working to become an RN. Chris Fahy and Mike Fisher hosted a fundraiser to be able to donate the money for the scholarship. Thank you to all the donors who made these scholarships possible.
Both the Foundation and Auxiliary honored their scholarship winners with an awards ceremony on June 13. We wish the recipients well as they continue their education in the healthcare field.
