Students Seeking Healthcare Careers Receive Scholarships

The White County Medical Foundation recently announced the 2013 Foundation 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 15 scholarships for $1,000 each to the students during the ceremony.


In awarding the scholarships, the Foundation sought students who plan to enter one of the many healthcare-related fields of study. The 15 Foundation 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.



“The White County Medical Center Auxiliary is delighted to help provide opportunities for promising students to pursue a career in medical services,” said Auxiliary President Kathy Gammill. “We feel it is important to invest in these bright individuals in hopes that they will seek employment here in the future.”
