New Castle High School senior, Victoria Evans and Union High School senior, Katarina Clark, were named as the recipients of The 2012 Jameson Health System Scholarship Award.
Victoria Evans, daughter of Vince Evans Cat Scan Technician in Jameson’s Medical Imaging Department, plans to attend the Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.
Katarina Clark will be graduating from Union High School and plans to attend Gannon University in Erie, PA to major in Journalism Communications with a minor in Archaeology and Culture. Her future plans are to become a broadcast journalist or writer for a large publication. She is the daughter of Bobbi Clark, RN, in Jameson Pediatrics.
“These bright young students exemplify the qualities of future leaders,” said Douglas Danko, President/CEO of Jameson Health System. “They have demonstrated a sincere commitment to their studies, athletic pursuits and to volunteering their time and talents in various capacities. These characteristics are precisely those which the Jameson Scholarship Award strives to encourage and recognize.”
Neil Chessin, Vice President of Operations, added, “Perhaps the most difficult task of the selection committee each year is choosing only two winners, and this year was no exception. All of our nominees are outstanding young people for so many reasons. They and their parents should all be extremely proud.”
Since 1996, Jameson Health System has awarded two $500 academic scholarships to individuals who are dependents of Jameson employees. The students must meet the criteria for outstanding academic achievement, extra-curricular activities and responses to two essay topics.
