French Hospital Medical Center Volunteer Guild Scholarship Recipients

The French Hospital Medical Center Volunteer Guild recently awarded four scholarships, totaling $2,000, to promising students, who will one day be medical professionals.

The scholarship money is used for books and supplies.

Cuesta College first year nursing students Kate Bounds, Kathrin Simpson and Kathleen Yeung were awarded $500 each. In addition, Brooke Crawford, who will be attending physician’s assistant’s school in Florida, received $500. Crawford is a volunteer at FHMC.

The FHMC Volunteer Guild is made up of more than 120 volunteers. They operate the gift shop and raise money through bake, book and jewelry sales. Recognizing worthy students and furthering their careers, are one of the highlights of their outreach. Over the last five years, the guild has provided some $7,500 in scholarship money.

Selected nursing student scholars must be second semester, first year nursing students at Cuesta College in order to qualify. Noteworthy academic standing and an essay detailing how the scholarship will help the students achieve their educational and nursing goals are considered by the Volunteer Guild when selecting recipients.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
