Hospital auxiliary funds scholarshipsPublished 5:23pm Thursday, April 26, 2012
Shelley Klug and Pamela Grosvenor, both registered nurses, received this year’s Lee Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Healthcare Education Scholarship in the amount of $500.
Klug works in Borgess-Lee Memorial Hospital’s surgery department.
She recently graduated with a bachelor of science in nursing from Ferris State University and will continue her nursing education there by pursuing her master’s degree.
“I strive to give our patients the very best,” she said. “I’m proud to work at a place that promotes furthering education to provide excellent, up-to-date nursing care.”
Grosvenor is the hospital’s perioperative supervisor. She received an associate degree in nursing from Southwestern Michigan College, and after 19 years of balancing work, marriage and raising two sons, is now pursuing a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Spring Arbor University.
“Obtaining a bachelor’s degree has always been an aspiration of mine,” Grosvenor
added. “Nursing is more than a ‘job’ for me; it has fueled my need to help others by extending hope, kindness, respect and a caring touch to promote healing optimism in times of stress and illness.”
“We sincerely congratulate Shelley and Pam on their continued professional excellence, and wish to thank the Lee Memorial Hospital Auxiliary for their support,” said Katie Brick, chief nursing officer, Borgess-Lee Memorial Hospital. “Scholarships like the Lee Memorial Auxiliary Healthcare Education Scholarship allow us to meet the growing demand for exceptional professionals in nursing, pharmacy, radiological technology, physical therapy and other critically needed medical disciplines.”
The Lee Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Healthcare Education Scholarship is a one-year
renewable grant designed to help individuals from Cass County who are specifically interested in pursuing careers in the field of health care.
