Gritman Medical Center Auxiliary awards $8,000 in scholarships

MOSCOW— The Gritman Medical Center Auxiliary awarded $8,000 this past week to high school seniors pursuing higher education.

Three Junior Volunteers at Gritman Medical Center received funds from the Chanda Morris Scholarship:

  • Phoebe White, Moscow High School, received $3,000. She is planning to study nutrition at Idaho State University.
  • Anna Curet, Moscow High School, received $2,000. She is planning to study audiology (communication sciences and disorders) at Idaho State University.
  • Madysen Cochran, Moscow High School, received $1,000. She is planning to study nursing at the University of Idaho.

The Chanda Morris Scholarship was established in the memory of Troy High School student Chanda Morris, a Gritman Junior Volunteer, who died in an auto accident in 1991. She was named Gritman Junior Volunteer of the Year in 1991, and was secretary and president of the Gritman Junior Volunteer Council.

Two students, Hyrum Russell and Victoria Wilk, each received $500 from the Besst Family Scholarship. This award recognizes high school achievements, extra curricular activities and leadership skills as a Junior Volunteer at Gritman Medical Center. This scholarship recognizes those who serve as mentors to younger junior volunteers.

Anna Curet, Moscow High School, received $1,000 from the Maurine Cherrington Scholarship. The scholarship is named for a long-time Gritman supporter and charter member of the Gritman Auxiliary. Cherrington’s appreciation for the hospital and its programs continues through her generosity to the scholarship programs.
