CARTHAGE, N.Y. (WWTI) — Four local seniors have been named recipients of a healthcare scholarship.
The Carthage Area Hospital Foundation and its Board of Directors have announced the recipients of the Dr. Frank Harvey and JoAnn Zando Healthcare Scholarship. This year’s recipients include Hannah D. Boshart and Jacob M. Barber from Carthage High School, Shae M. Marriott from Beaver River High School, and Quinlyn Ormsby from LaFargeville High School.
This annual scholarship is awarded to graduating high school seniors from Carthage High School, Beaver River High School, LaFargeville High School, as well as any graduating high school senior of a Carthage Area Hospital employee.
“This scholarship is near and dear to the Foundation as it honors the memory of a beloved local physician and longtime Foundation employee who passed away too soon,” shared Foundation and Marketing Director Taylour Scanlin. “This year’s recipients will be entering various healthcare fields to include nursing, physical therapy, and nephrology. Each student submission is graded based on several sets of criteria and a selection committee makes the ultimate decision. On behalf of the Board of Directors and myself, we wish these students all the best in their future endeavors.”
