The Saint Joseph Hospital Foundation, Lexington, KY, awarded scholarships to 13 nurses in the Lexington area. The scholarship awards total $17,000, and help provide KentuckyOne Health nurses with educational opportunities and the ability to pay off student loans. A reception on July 18 honored the local nurses selected for a scholarship.

“Nurses are extremely important to our hospitals, patients and community, and this is a way we can give back to them as they are paying off debt or furthering their education,” said Leslie Buddeke Smart, CFRE, division vice president of development, KentuckyOne Health. “We plan to keep offering these opportunities annually as we continue to hire more nurses for our hospitals.”

Recipients of Nurse Leadership Scholarships include Tiffany Banks, Dianna Madden and Regina Masters.

Recipients of Nursing and Allied Health Scholarships include Wendy Baker, Rebeka Caudill, Reuben Donkor, Amy Downey, Kimberly Maxey, Connie Melson, Amanda Owens, Richard Post, Julia Terry and Patrick Thompson.
