In April, the Schuyler Hospital Auxiliary released that they were accepting nominations for their annual scholarship. Each year they award scholarships to high school graduates who may be planning to enter the healthcare field, or a hospital employee continuing their education. This year they are thrilled to announce not one – but two award scholarship winners. This year they are giving $1500 to each recipient, a $500 increase from 2021.
Jordann Marie Simpson, of Rock Stream, is a recent graduate from the Watkins Glen Central School. Simpson plans to attend Keuka College to study psychology, on her way to entering the mental health field.
Hannah Nicole Hubbell, a current C.N.A. at Schuyler Hospital’s Seneca View Skilled Nursing Facility, plans to pursue her nursing degree.
“Our members have made the scholarship program a priority, because it is important to them to support our future healthcare professionals,” said Kitty Shallenberger, President, Schuyler Hospital Auxiliary. “We are proud to recognize Jordann and Hannah and wish them well in their schooling.”
Scholarship awards are presented each year to graduating high school seniors who live or attend school in Schuyler County and plan to enter careers in the healthcare field, or to Schuyler Hospital employees furthering their education.
Awards are based on academic achievement, volunteerism, and personal essays. Previous recipients have been in such diverse fields as orthopedics, dentistry, physical therapy, optometry, speech therapy, and pharmacy.
The Auxiliary awarded its first scholarship of $250 in1990. Over the next twenty years it grew to three $1000 scholarships, and in 2022, increased to $1500. Funds for the awards are raised through the Auxiliary’s hospital gift shop and other fundraising events.
