Summer is looking bright for ten Tuality staff members who were recently awarded scholarships by Tuality Healthcare Foundation in order to pursue health-related education or certification. The following people received educational scholarships for summer term 2011:
The Foundation awards scholarships to deserving employees within a variety of departments at Tuality Healthcare. As a result, recipients were able to attend various seminars, workshops, and conferences in order to advance their work skills.
“I am so grateful for the scholarship I received by Tuality Foundation to help with my schooling,” said Mary Mulholland, a 2010 scholarship recipient who is studying to become a radiology technologist. “I have been given confidence in knowing that I will be a part of an advanced educational world where I can exercise and challenge my mind, and in turn bring back new skills and knowledge to Tuality.”
Interviews are conducted on a quarterly basis by the Scholarship Committee, which consists of Foundation board members and chaired by Dr. Anthony Hoffman. In 2010, the committee awarded over $27,000 in scholarships to 47 Tuality employees. Funding for the Foundation scholarships is generously donated by the community as well as the following funds: “Well Into the Future” Endowment, R.E. Hutchinson M.D. Health Scholarship Fund, Helen Schoen Scholarship Fund, Jane Kay Pitts Nursing Scholarship Fund and the Judy Browning Memorial Scholarship.
“These endowed funds were created by generous donors who wished their gifts to last on into perpetuity,” adds Cece Clitheroe, director of the Tuality Healthcare Foundation.
