(Sept. 13, 2011) — The East Morgan County Hospital (EMCH) Foundation announced the 2011 Scholarship has been awarded to a student working in the Brush area who is continuing her medical education. Brandy Rogers, a certified nursing assistant (CNA) at EMCH, received a $500 scholarship to advance her medical training.
“Brandy is an excellent example of an individual dedicated to the field of health care and is interested in advancing her career. Brandy’s ultimate goal is to become a flight nurse. This scholarship will help her move toward her ultimate goal,” said Suzanna Spears, EMCH Foundation President.
Rogers, will continue attending Morgan Community College, where she is on track to graduate in May 2012 from the Licensed Practice Nurse (LPN) program. Following this achievement, she’ll transfer to another college to complete her Bachelor of Science degree.
Her educational goal is to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. Rogers is a full time student, works per diem as a CNA at East Morgan County Hospital.
