SoutheastHEALTH Foundation and SoutheastHEALTH Auxiliary scholarship recipients had the opportunity to personally thank the individuals who are helping them earn advanced degrees at a Scholarship Luncheon held recently at the Jackson Civic Center. The luncheon celebrated the success of 33 students who received $67,000 in scholarship awards. Guest speaker was Dr. Jerry Durham, Interim President of the Southeast Missouri Hospital College of Nursing and Health Sciences. 

The scholarship program continues to grow each year, said SoutheastHEALTH Foundation Executive Director Patti Ranzini. “Because of the generosity of donors, our scholarship recipients are working to transform their dreams into reality. Our scholarship programs not only make a difference to students, but also to our communities, as scholars meet their academic goals and enter the growing healthcare workforce.”

Since 1962, more than $1.1 million in scholarships has been awarded by the Auxiliary and Foundation.
