Skaggs Foundation recently made a $3,750 investment in the future of local healthcare by awarding five scholarships to students pursuing or advancing careers in the medical field. The scholarships are for the summer 2020 semester.
“We are committed to continuing to support our local healthcare workforce, those who are furthering their careers as well as those soon to be entering the field,” said Skaggs Foundation President Meghan Connell. “The COVID-19 pandemic has really shed light on something we already knew – our healthcare workers truly are heroes. We could not be more proud to support these students who will spend their summer furthering their education.”
Among the scholarship recipients, two are entering the healthcare field and three are currently employed in the CoxHealth system.
Recipients include Deanna Gray, Samuel Henriquez, Kayci Hill, Collette Lavoi, and Jenna Salemie.
Since inception in 2002, Skaggs Foundation has awarded a total of $402,950 in scholarships to students pursuing careers in healthcare. Announcements regarding fall 2020 scholarships will be made soon.
