Seven nursing students at Community Medical Centers received $3,000 through the Alice A. Peters Nursing Scholarship Fund to continue their studies and three hospital nurses received Marilyn Hawkins memorial scholarships during a ceremony at Community Regional Medical Center.
"The Alice A. Peters Nursing Scholarship program was established to ensure that Community continues to build a strong nursing force to meet the needs of our patients. Aunt Alice has always valued the leading role nurses play in a hospital," explained Craig Apregan, Leon S. Peters board member and nephew of Alice, who passed away in the past year. The fund was designed to lessen the financial burden and help nursing students complete their studies on schedule. Scholarships are awarded to nursing students who are Community employees.
In February 2002, a $300,000 gift from Alice A. Peters implemented this scholarship program. An additional matching gift fund was started four years ago by the
Leon S. Peters Foundation to encourage employee support of the program. Because of this matching gift, Community's employees responded to make sure the scholarship fund continues.
Consider making a gift to Community Medical Foundation to help ensure that Community provides the most technologically advanced, high-quality medical care available.
