The Knox Community Hospital Auxiliary recently awarded seven $1,000 health career scholarships to area high school seniors and college juniors and seniors. Students were considered based on their scholastic standing, community involvement, and financial need. Auxiliary scholarship committee members received and considered several applications before making their selections.
The following students were chosen to receive scholarships: Isabella Adrian, Avery Bell, Anna Dinnen, Nichole Groseclose, Lucy Ogle, Madelyn Sinsel, and Avery Tucker. This was the fifth year for the Nellie & Lowell Truex Memorial Scholarship, given to Celeste Swihart.
The Auxiliary is a group of volunteers that raises money for these scholarships through many annual fundraising events. Additionally, sales in the KCH Gift Shops contribute to the scholarships that have been awarded over the past several years.
