Twice a year, the Community Memorial Hospital (CMH) Auxiliary awards hospital employees a $500 scholarship to further their education through the Tree of Love – Elizabeth T. Moseley Scholarship Fund. The scholarship is funded by community donations made to the “Tree of Love” in memory, honor, or military tribute to a loved one. Recipients must meet certain criteria, such as being employed by VCU Health CMH for at least one year, providing a letter of recommendation from their department chair, maintaining a 3.0 GPA or higher, and writing a 100-word essay on how the scholarship would improve their lives. The degree or certification pursued must enhance the employee’s abilities in a hospital position.
Last fall, the CMH Auxiliary awarded scholarships to three employees: Ashton Carter of Chase City; Allison Mull of Boydton; and Brianna Taylor of Chase City.
Ashton Carter works in acute care. She attends J. Sargent Reynolds Community College and pursues studies in respiratory therapy. Once graduated, she wants to join our formidable team of respiratory therapists.
Allison Mull works at CMH Community Hospice. She is in the process of completing a Masters in Social Work at Walden University. Her goal is to gain more experience to help serve our community.
Brianna Taylor works as an administrative representative. She is in the process of obtaining a Master of Science in Health Care Management. This scholarship will ease some financial burden as she is expecting her first child very soon and has moved into a new house.
Auxiliary President Kenny Pitts said, “We are so grateful to the generous donors who make this scholarship possible.
We are proud of our employees who pursue additional education to further their career paths and improve patient care.
