Local hospital awards nursing scholarships

Three students in the Department of Nursing have received scholarships to make the cost of their educations a little easier.

The Mount Carmel Regional Medical Center Auxiliary awarded three $1,200 scholarships to seniors Kim Norris, Ashley Humble, and Peter Bates, at the hospital’s recent Auxiliary luncheon. The scholarship money was raised by bake sales put on by the Auxiliary over the past year.

Helen Kriegsman, a former PSU faculty member and volunteer in the Office of University Development, served as head of the group’s scholarship committee, and selected the students to receive the awards. All three are volunteers at Mount Carmel.
