Knox Community Hospital Auxiliary Awards Scholarships

The Knox Community Hospital Auxiliary recently awarded 15 - $1,000  health career scholarships to area high school graduates.

Auxiliary scholarship committee members considered all applications prior to making their selection.  Students are considered on the basis of their scholastic standing, community involvement, as well as financial need.

The 15 high school recipients they have chosen are:  Cassandra Cochran, Spencer Enderle, Shelby Holt, Ashlee Hulse, Lauren Keaton, Renee Kinser, Angela Kladias, Cassandra Losego, Lauren Mickley, Kara Moreland, Rachel Naber, Mayre Newcomb, Morgan Pryer, Lauren Trace, Alaina Wright.   This is the second year for the Nellie & Lowell Truex Memorial Scholarship which was given to Craig Mickley.

 The Auxiliary raises money for these scholarships through many fundraising events.  Also, the sales of the Hospital Gift Shop contribute to the scholarships that have been awarded over the past several years. In addition to the scholarships, the Auxiliary provides funds for the donation of toys given to children who come in for emergency services, laboratory, surgery and diagnostic imaging.
