The Prosser Memorial Health Foundation Board has announced the (3) 2021 $2000.00 scholarship winners.

Prosser Memorial Health Foundation and its Auxiliary Volunteers raise funds through sales at the hospital’s gift shop. These funds are earmarked as scholarships for high school seniors pursuing higher education in the healthcare field. Members of the Foundation Board of Directors and Auxiliary Volunteers reviewed all applications taking into consideration the student’s grade point average, extra-curricular activities, community involvement, letters of recommendation and their financial need.

The 2021 Scholarship recipients are:

Grandview High School: Jari Tavira, who is planning to attend Heritage University and study to become a physician.

Prosser High School: Aspen Peters, who will be attending Eastern Washington University to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Her goal is to one day become a Registered Emergency Room Nurse.

Prosser High School: Grace Bestebreur, who will be attending Whitworth University to earn a degree and pursue her career goal of becoming an Occupational Therapist.

Congratulations to all three students! We look forward to seeing you back here at Prosser Memorial Health one day.

The Prosser Memorial Health Foundation Board and its Auxiliary Volunteers are excited to offer this scholarship opportunity to seniors in our community. We want to encourage and support students who are interested in a career in the healthcare industry whether that be as a doctor, nurse, or healthcare administrator – all play an important role in Prosser Memorial Health’s ability to deliver high quality, affordable healthcare to the communities we serve,” said Shannon Hitchcock, Foundation Executive Director.
