Spring 2019 – Nine students from schools within the former St. Clement Hospital and Maria Care facilities service area – now known as Red Bud Regional Hospital (RBRH) and Red Bud Nursing Home (RBNH) – have been awarded scholarships by the St Clement Community Foundation (SCCF).
The scholarship is intended to support deserving students in their academic endeavors and the development of quality health care professionals in this region. The Foundation strongly encourages scholarship recipients, upon completion of their program of study, to seek employment in the health care field in this geographic area in keeping with the mission of this foundation to ensure the availability and enhancement of health care services to residents of our area.
Consideration is given to candidates who are traditional students, non-traditional students (attending college some years after high school), and to applicants who are an employee of RBHR/RBNH or are a dependent of an employee.
Scholarship awards this year were for $1,500 each. Recipients are: Traditional – Amanda Toth who was homeschooled in Waterloo, Sara Andres from Valmeyer High School, Rachel Hall from Marissa Jr/Sr High School, and Sara Rose from Gibault Catholic High School. Non-Traditional – Tammy Kloepper of Red Bud, Kara Roth of Prairie du Rocher, Shawnna Phillips of Valmeyer, Rebecca Koopman of Red Bud, and Victoria Trujillo of Red Bud.
SCCF was formed to provide Randolph, Monroe, and southern St. Clair county communities a way to ensure the availability and enhancement of health care services for future generations. In addition to scholarships, SCCF awards grants annually to area agencies who are actively involved in health-related activities. Since 2003, the Foundation has provided grants and scholarships to the community of over $431,000. For more information about SCCF, please visit stclementcf.org.
