Hospital Announces Scholarship Recipients

Parmer Medical Center was pleased to announce the Friona High School recipients of the second annual Parmer Medical Center Community Scholarship Program on Sunday, May 15.  The purpose of the scholarships is to promote service excellence in health care for Parmer County by assisting capable and qualified students interested in pursing healthcare related professions.  There were eleven applicants competing for the four scholarships.  Applicants were from three Parmer County high schools.

The selection committee was comprised of school staff, hospital staff and the public at large.  They selected four deserving students to each receive a $2,500 award.  Kelsey White, a Friona High School graduate, is planning on attending South Plains College and has chosen nursing as her profession.  She has been volunteering at Blue Bonnet Home Health and Hospice in preparation for her future career.  The next FHS recipient was Caitlin Bronniman.  She has chosen a career as a Pediatrician and will be attending West Texas A&M University.  Caitlin has worked as a summer intern in the nursing department of PMC and will do so again this summer.   Regan Anthony, the final FHS recipient, will attend Texas Tech in pursuit of a career as a physical therapist.  She will also be a student intern this summer at PMC in the physical therapy department.

The remaining scholarship was awarded to a Senior from another area high schools  That scholarship will be announced at their school’s graduation.

The PMC Board of Directors and staff all wish a hearty congratulations to each of the initial scholarship recipients.  An additional thank you goes to each of the other seven students who also plan a medical career and took the time to apply.  Parmer County can be proud of the young people in our area.
