Health System Awards Scholarships to Two Students

Two students entering Pennsylvania College of Technology this fall have been awarded full-tuition scholarships from the Williamsport Hospital Campus of Susquehanna Health System.

The recipients, Kirk D. Evans of South Williamsport, and Rebecca A. Weaver, Williamsport, are entering a health sciences major, were born at Williamsport Hospital and graduated from high school this year.

Evans is a Pre-Nursing student; Weaver is enrolled in the Pre-Physician Assistant major.

The scholarships will cover the cost of tuition for one year and are not renewable. The trust and scholarship fund was created by the Williamsport Hospital Board of Directors in 1986 to provide a pool of scholarship funds to be awarded beginning in Fall 2004.

First preference for the full-tuition scholarships is given to students with a high-school grade-point average of 3.0 or greater and to those with a parent, guardian or other close relative employed full time by Susquehanna Health System.

In addition to the full-tuition scholarship awarded each year to one male and one female student enrolled in a health-care-related field, the trust also will pay up to $500 to eligible students who were born at Williamsport Hospital and who enroll at Penn College within one year of high-school graduation.

Williamsport Hospital funded the trust for six years, from 1986 through 1991, with benefits for the full-tuition scholarship and the $500 scholarship to be paid out starting in the Fall 2004 semester and concluding with the spring semester of 2010.

Students eligible for the $500 scholarship may submit an application for the Spring 2005 semester before Oct. 15.
