St. Joseph’s Mercy Health Center Auxiliary Dollars for Scholars has awarded $250 scholarships to Katie Clark and Cheryl Jones.
The scholarships are awarded annually to full-time St. Joseph’s Mercy co-workers who are pursuing an education in healthcare related fields of study. The checks were presented by Jack Losman, St. Joseph’s Mercy Auxiliary President, and Susan Rima, Director of Volunteer Services.
Clark works as a receptionist at the 70 West Clinic. She plans to enter the R.N. or LPN program at National Park Community College in Hot Springs. Her ultimate goal is to be a nurse practitioner.
"She is dependable, trustworthy, and meticulous in her work ethic,” said Tammy Sassaman, practice manager at 70 West Clinic in her reference letter. “She is always willing to learn new job duties without complaint. She is always professional and understands the importance of HIPPA when dealing with the patients.”.
Jones works as a LPN at the Mercy Clinic in Malvern. She wants to return to school to begin the RN program.
“She is an excellent team player and great role model for all other co-workers,” said Teresa Osburn of Mercy’s 270 West Clinic. “She exemplifies her Mercy values daily in her work.”
