Kent & Queen Anne`s Hospital is offering scholarships to students planning careers in the health care field.
The Hospital`s Auxiliary created the Katherine "Kitty" Anthony Clements Scholarship to assist individuals in obtaining needed education or training required to become a health care provider in a field necessary to meet the workforce needs of the hospital.
Applicants should be planning to pursue careers in areas such as nursing, surgical technology, radiology or medical laboratory work. The program will fund a student`s education in exchange for working a pre-determined length of service at the hospital while maintaining a minimum grade point average of 2.5. A recipient may receive up to $7,000 over three years; funds may be used to pay for tuition, fees and books. Students applying for the program should be Delmarva residents.
"The Clements scholarship funds are a positive tool used to help the hospital meet its need for trained and qualified workers," notes Beverly Churchill, vice president, human resources at the hospital. "And they can be a major asset for community members seeking a career in health care. We are very grateful to the Auxiliary for this generous gift."
Detailed information and applications are available from the human resources department of Kent & Queen Anne`s Hospital located at 100 Brown Street, Chestertown, or by calling Leslie Stack at (410) 778-3000, extension 4006.Clements, a Kingstown resident, was a devoted volunteer who served the auxiliary as president and held many other offices and chairmanships during her long association with the group. At the time of her death she was an active in-house volunteer giving time each week to help the hospital staff.
