Students Seeking Healthcare Careers Receive Scholarships

The White County Medical Foundation recently announced the 2014 Foundation Auxiliary Scholarship recipients at the annual Auxiliary Awards Luncheon held in the Hubach Conference Center at White County Medical Center. Foundation Executive Director, Cassandra Feltrop presented the fifteen (15) scholarships for $1,000 each to the students during the ceremony.

In awarding the scholarships, the Auxiliary Scholarship Selection Team sought students who plan to enter one of the many healthcare-related fields of study. The fifteen (15) Foundation Auxiliary Scholarships were established as a memorial for a loved one, or in memory or in honor of individuals who made great contributions to medicine in White County. Funding for the scholarships is provided by the White County Medical Center Auxiliary each year.

“We think it’s important for the Auxiliary to give back,” said Auxiliary President June Tripp. “The purpose is to provide money to those who want to pursue careers in healthcare and our hope is that awareness is heightened about this scholarship opportunity for those who are seeking to further their education in a healthcare related field.”
