At their monthly meeting on Monday, Aug. 7, the Uvalde Memorial Hospital Auxiliary announced Fall 2017 nursing scholarship recipients.
Sherley Wentz, scholarship committee chairwoman, introduced fall scholarship winners Desiree Rodriguez of Sabinal, Juanita Del Toro of Uvalde, and Guadalupe Rodriguez of Uvalde. Each recipient was awarded $3,500 toward the completion of a registered nursing program at Southwest Texas Junior College in Uvalde. Each recipient is enrolled to begin his or her final year of the program in the fall and anticipate graduating in May 2018.
“The auxiliary works very hard to raise funds to provide scholarships to aspiring nurses and we greatly appreciate their efforts,” said Charla Carter, director of human resources and volunteer services at Uvalde Memorial Hospital.
