GREELEY, Colo. (Aug. 21, 2012) — North Colorado Medical Center volunteers recently awarded $51,000 in scholarships to high school and college students who have made a valuable contribution to the community through their volunteer service at the hospital.
Fifteen students were recognized with scholarships for their achievements in academics, their dedication to volunteer work, and their passion for pursing their future goals.
This year’s winners include area high school seniors who plan to pursue higher education at a number of universities this fall, current college students, individuals currently in the work force who plan to go to school, and students pursuing a master’s degree or medical school next year.
Eight students received $4,000 each: Brittany Ledall and Heather Ferrara of Eaton and Beth Sereff, Micayla Tetiva, Jason Ehart, Jenna Olson, Jasmine West, and David Shimokawa, all of Greeley, were recognized for their years and hours of volunteer service at NCMC in addition to their outstanding academic achievements and community involvement.
Mitchael Zonnefeld of Fort Collins, Brandon Miller, Brittany Ferrara, Rebecca Kindsfather, and Barbara Rongey, all of Greeley, were awarded $3,000 each based on their impressive hard work and dedication to their future goals. Kristen Denham and Ali Kirpatrick of Greeley will each receive $2,000 for their outstanding efforts.
To be eligible for a NCMC volunteer scholarship, individuals must give at least 100 hours of volunteer service. Many of this year’s winners donated in excess of this requirement while excelling in school and extra-curricular activities. The applications are reviewed by a committee of volunteers.
