Emporia News needs your help...

Do you read Emporia News every day? Have you ever considered supporting this community based news service with a donation? You may also make a recurring donation with a subscription.

Emporia News needs your help because it is time to replace a laptop and a camera, so that I may continue to bring you a quality site. It troubles me to ask for donations, but without support, Emporia News may be forced to shut down. Thank You.

Elizabeth T. Moseley Scholarship Winners

Kenneth Pitts, Auxiliary President; Mary Anne Carter, Auxiliary Member; Jessica Johnson, RN; Jennifer Weston, Acute Care Cardiac Monitor Tech; W. Scott Burnette, Chief Executive Officer; and Darlene Ferguson, Auxiliary Member.

The VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital’s Auxiliary recognized the Elizabeth T. Moseley Scholarship Fund Winners Jessica Johnson, RN, and Jennifer Weston, Acute Care Cardiac Monitor Tech.

Applicants for the scholarship, funded by donations to the “Tree of Love,” had to pursue a degree or certification that would enhance the employee’s capabilities in a position at the hospital. Both Jessica and Jennifer were selected after the committee evaluated each applicant’s required essay on how “receiving the scholarship would enhance your life.”

As part of Jennifer’s essay, she revealed how an organ transplant saved her life.

“I would love the opportunity to be present when others receive this life saving gift and to help take care of them,” she said. Jennifer is in the RN program at Southside Virginia Community College.

Jessica Johnson stated how much the scholarship would help offset the cost of books and supplies in her continued education being “13 months away from the completion of my post masters certificate in Pediatric Nurse Practitioner.” Jessica attends Maryville University online.

W. Scott Burnette, Chief Executive Officer and members of the Auxiliary were on hand to congratulate the winners and present the award.
