The 2017-2018 Winona Health Volunteers Carol Hill Scholarship committee has awarded $20,000 in scholarships to nine students, all of whom have been accepted into an accredited healthcare program.
Carol Hill Scholarship funds are raised through Volunteer events including the $5 Jewelry & Accessories Sale, Fantasy of Trees, Basket Bonanza and Holiday Happiness, along with sales from the Glady D. Miller Gift Shop. Since the Winona Health Volunteers awarded its first nursing scholarship in 1962, more than $620,000 has been awarded to area students as they study to become caregivers.
The Winona Health Volunteers are pleased to help these students as they begin their education in healthcare or as they work toward completing their healthcare program.
