CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KBSI) – Twenty-five students received $30,000 in scholarship awards from the SoutheastHEALTH Foundation.

Funds for the scholarships come from individual and family donors.

“Because of the generosity of donors, our scholarship recipients are working to enter a field dedicated to helping others, which is more important now than ever before,” said SoutheastHEALTH Foundation Executive Director Darah Jirkovsky. “These programs make a difference to patients and the communities we serve, as scholars meet their academic goals and enter the healthcare work force.”

Since 1962, the SoutheatHEALTH Foundation has awarded more than $1.1 million to local scholars. These funds have supported the education of over 1,260 current and future healthcare workers for our region.
