The Memorial Hospital Auxiliary has established an annual $1,000 nursing scholarship that is awarded to a nursing student enrolled in the Northern Tier Career Center's Practical Nursing Program in Towanda.

Applicants for the scholarship must be a resident of Bradford or Sullivan County and must have completed one level of the nursing program. Applicants must have a grade average of 85% or higher and be paying cash or receiving loans for their nursing education in order to qualify. Additionally, applicants submit an essay on the reason for selecting practical nursing as their career choice.

Charlene Bennett of Memorial Hospital's Auxiliary is pleased to announce that Cassie Dollard of Ulster is this year's winner of the annual $1,000 scholarship. "It is always difficult to choose just one winner from the applicants," said Bennett. "Each one deserved it in their own way. We are pleased and proud to honor Cassie this year. She has a 96.8 GPA, an outstanding clinical evaluation, she has an exceptional attitude and she clearly demonstrates a sincere commitment to caring for others in the nursing profession."

Following is an excerpt from Cassie's essay: "I want to be a nurse because I love to make people feel better. The Northern Tier Practical Nursing Program is an excellent way to start a career in the nursing field. It's a great way to open the doors to the numerous opportunities that are in store for us after graduation. This course prepares us to be professional, disciplined, knowledgeable and nurturing. It has already been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life."

This is the 10th year Memorial Hospital's Auxiliary has given the $1,000 scholarship to a licensed practical nursing student enrolled at the Northern Tier Career Center in North Towanda.
