The Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital Foundation board has named four recipients of the 2018 Healthcare Career Scholarship. David Curry, Lindsey Goodwin, Katie Hunsley all of Lincoln and Hannah Freer of Mt. Pulaski were selected as recipients after a rigorous application process that included three rounds of interviews with members of the ALMH leadership team and foundation directors. Each student will receive $20,000 to help fund their pursuit of a degree. The award includes an agreement to work at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital (ALMH) in Lincoln following graduation.
Sarah Helm, executive director of the ALMH Foundation reports that the foundation has made a commitment to invest in the future workforce of ALMH through its healthcare career scholarship program. Since 2013, the foundation board has awarded over $350,000 to students pursuing degrees in healthcare with intentions to work at ALMH after graduation. Helm says the opportunity is possible thanks to the generosity of donors.
