Hospital Auxiliary scholarships

The Valley View Hospital Auxiliary recently awarded 10 $3,000 scholarships to students who are entering or continuing their education in the health science field. Recipients of the Teeny Jeung scholarships for those graduating from high school were Sierra Martin and Mackenzie Fuller from Glenwood Springs High School, Jenifer Esquevel from Coal Ridge High School, and Karen Garcia from Rifle High School.

Those who received a health science scholarship for continued study were Dylan Rakowski and Alida Eide, both of whom are attending the University of Colorado. Four scholarships are awarded to students in the nursing program at CMC’s Spring Valley Campus — Tony Olivas Estebane, Katie Julius, Tia Koski and Julie Lewis were this year’s recipients.

The funds for these scholarships are raised through sales in the hospital gift shop and fundraisers held by the VVH Auxiliary throughout the year.
