Dr. Cory Offutt Signs Contract with TCMHFebruary 23, 2015
The Texas County Memorial Hospital Healthcare Foundation has awarded two $1,000 scholarships to area students to assist with their educational costs for the 2015 spring school semester.
Receiving $1,000 scholarships from the TCMH Healthcare Foundation were Nancy Hovelson of Rolla and Kerry York of Houston. The recipients were chosen among several applicants by members of the Healthcare Foundation board of directors.
Hovelson is pursuing an Associate of Applied Science in radiologic technology through Rolla Technical Institute and East Central College in Rolla. Hovelson is a student technologist in the TCMH radiology department.
York is pursuing a Bachelor of Science in nursing through Cox College in Springfield, MO. She is a registered nurse in the TCMH emergency department.
York has been a recipient of a TCMH Healthcare Foundation scholarship in the past. This is Hovelson’s first time to receive a scholarship from the Healthcare Foundation.
“Educational scholarships are a focus area of the TCMH Healthcare Foundation,” Jay Gentry, Healthcare Foundation director, said. He added, “Our board of directors believes in the importance of education for area students that are pursuing training in healthcare-related fields.”
The Healthcare Foundation awards educational scholarships for students pursuing additional higher education each spring and fall. This fall, the Healthcare Foundation will award endowed scholarship funds in addition to the Healthcare Foundation scholarships.
“The Foundation board of directors recognizes the growing need for healthcare providers in rural America,” Gentry stated. “It is the hope of the Foundation that these scholarships will assist in attracting and retaining qualified residents to work in the local healthcare fields.”
