Supporting the next generation of medical professionals, McKenzie Health System recently awarded three McKenzie Medical Staff Merit Scholarships to local students interested in pursuing healthcare professions.
Brooklynn Paradoski of Croswell-Lexington High School was awarded a $1,000 scholarship to Concordia University-Ann Arbor, where she plans to study nursing. Jarred Jolley, also of Croswell-Lexington High School, received a $500 scholarship to study occupational therapy at Macomb Community College, and Bowen Vargo of Peck High School was awarded a $500 scholarship, which he will use to pursue a nursing degree at Saginaw Valley State University.
The McKenzie Medical Staff Merit Scholarships are awarded annually to Sanilac County graduating high school seniors entering an accredited college or university and planning to become a healthcare professional. Selection criteria are based on academic achievement, community service and accomplishments.
“We are delighted to support Brooklynn, Jarred and Bowen in achieving their education and career dreams,” said James L. Sams, MD.
“At McKenzie Health System, we are passionate about our present and our future and are honored to offer these scholarships,” added Kimberley Curell, PA-C.
