Through the generosity of the Mildred and Bernard Doyle Charitable Trust, $5000 scholarships have been awarded to Plymouth Harbor employees Monica Copeland and Franco Valencia.
Thirteen applications were received this year, with one previous recipient applying for a continuation of his scholarship funding. It was the wish of Mr. and Mrs. Doyle, former Plymouth Harbor residents, that this scholarship provide educational assistance to “a worthy and needy student of an employee of Plymouth Harbor” or “a worthy and needy employee seeking to increase their skills or to obtain a higher education.”
The scholarship selection committee at Northern Trust Bank includes former Plymouth Harbor executive director Jack Smith.
Monica Copeland joined the Smith Care Center staff as an LPN in February 2008. Monica plans to enroll in the LPN to RN Transition Program at State College of Florida.
Franco Valencia joined the Plymouth Harbor staff in March 2011 and serves as a Line Cook. Franco is pursuing his bachelor’s degree in Hospitality and Hotel Management at the University of South Florida.
Congratulations to both!
