Unity Health Announces Annual Scholarship Recipients

Unity Health Foundation recently announced the 2017 Foundation Auxiliary Scholarship recipients at the annual Auxiliary Awards Luncheon held in the Hubach Conference Center at the Unity Health’s White County Medical Center campus. Foundation Executive Director, Cassandra Feltrop presented scholarships of $1,000 each to students during the ceremony.

In awarding the scholarships, the Auxiliary Scholarship Selection Team sought students who plan to enter one of the many healthcare-related fields of study. The Foundation Auxiliary Scholarships were established as a memorial for a loved one, or in memory or in honor of individuals who made great contributions to medicine in White County.
