Local Students Score Additional Health Career Assistance

hcc 300HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (8/30/13) – As concern and unrest swirl around healthcare legislation on the national level, Hopkinsville Community College (HCC) students continue to benefit from the generosity of local citizens as scholarship support grows for nursing and allied health programs.
 
The college’s local foundation has announced recipients of two new scholarships. The Billie Lee Cayce scholarship, established in the memory of Mrs. Cayce, will support two HCC students, Erica Moyer and Melissa Johnsa, with $500 each this fall. While Mike and Helen Cayce have spearheaded the fundraising efforts on behalf of the family, they are quick to recognize the gifts from friends and family of Mrs. Cayce in setting up this new scholarship. Intended to support non-traditional students in the college’s nursing program, the Cayce family hopes to help provide a pathway to success during the critical final semesters of nurse education, when it becomes nearly impossible for students to earn money outside of college, as the demands of the course of study are heavy.
 
Similarly, the Indian Physicians Association for Community Service has provided tuition scholarships via the HCC Foundation for the upcoming academic year to the following students: Lindsey Hood, Shannon Brough, Emily Lambert and Andrea Trujillo. As announced last year, the IPACS group has determined that there is much to be gained working as a group to philanthropically benefit several local community groups. HCC has been the beneficiary of their visionary giving as year, and anticipates a five-year commitment from these physicians as they give back to the community where they live and work.
 
“We are blessed that so many people in our area have compassion for their fellow citizens and want to see them pursue their dreams and succeed, and we are grateful that HCC can be the conduit to fulfilling educational and life goals,” said Interim President Pat Lake.
 
The Foundation is gearing up for its annual fund-raising events later this fall, and gifts are welcome at any time. Contact Yvette Eastham at 270- 707-3731 to discuss giving options.
