The Calvert Memorial Hospital Foundation is excited to announce the 10 recipients of its scholarships awarded to students pursuing higher education in an allied health field. Since the program began in 1991, it has awarded close to $395,000 to 314 local students.
“Providing scholarships to support future healthcare providers and encourage those who seek to build their knowledge and skills to better serve others in health care is one of the most rewarding things we are able to do through the CMH Foundation,” said Dixie Miller, director.
Recipients for 2014 included five students from Calvert County, two from St. Mary’s and three from Anne Arundel. Six are pursuing a degree in nursing. The others are studying radiography, occupational and physical therapy.
The winners are Andrea Beckman of Leonardtown who is attending the University of Maryland Baltimore; Audrey Fordham of St. Leonard who is attending Georgetown University; Tierney Guido of Prince Frederick who is attending Thomas Jefferson University; Michaela Miller of Huntingtown who is attending Messiah University; Kristen Mills of Mechanicsville who is attending the College of Southern Maryland; Rose Montgomery of Annapolis who is attending Villanova University; John Richey of Davidsonville who is attending Towson University; Alexis Smith of Lusby who is attending the College of Southern Maryland; Bridgette Wisniewski of Huntingtown who is attending Mount St. Mary’s and Jamie Wood of Friendship who is attending the University of Maryland Baltimore.
