On behalf of the Plymouth Harbor Foundation, we are delighted to award scholarships this 2014-2015 academic year to four worthy individuals.
Carol Bello has been awarded the Bea Davis Memorial Scholarship. Carol is the daughter of Martha Chavez, a member of our housekeeping department. She is enrolled at Florida State University this fall, working toward her bachelor’s degree, double majoring in Criminology and Political Science. Her longer term plans are to attend law school. While her eligibility for the scholarship was due to her mother’s employment at Plymouth Harbor, Carol herself is employed as a dietary aide in the Smith Care Center for a few more weeks, as she prepares to return to school in Tallahassee this month.
Bea Davis was a 38-year employee of Plymouth Harbor who passed away in 2013. Her Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually to a housekeeping employee or their immediate family member.
Tara Mitchell has been awarded the Jane T. Smiley Scholarship. Enrolled at State College of Florida, Tara is working toward her RN degree. She is currently a Charge Nurse in the Smith Care Center and has been an employee for over eight years. She is completing her final pre-requisites to the RN program and will be able to begin that program this 2014-2015 academic year. She plans to go on to earn her BSN after obtaining her RN certification.
Jane Smiley is a beloved resident of Plymouth Harbor who established this scholarship in support of our employees who wish to increase their education.
Amy Rice has been awarded the Evelin Corsey Scholarship. Amy is a Charge Nurse in the Smith Care Center and is a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). She will use her scholarship to obtain a special certification in wound care that is available to LPNs. Amy has been an employee of Plymouth Harbor for over one year.
The Evelin Corsey Scholarship was established through a bequest from Evelin Corsey, a resident at Plymouth Harbor who passed away in 2013. Ms. Corsey loved the employees of Plymouth Harbor.
Lucy Guzman has been awarded a General Education Scholarship. Lucy has been employed at Plymouth Harbor as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) in the Smith Care Center for nearly four years. She is enrolled in and currently attending classes at the Sarasota School of Massage Therapy to obtain her license as a Massage Therapist. Lucy is also a Certified Phlebotomy Technician.
General Education Scholarships are funded through the Plymouth Harbor Foundation by generous donors who wish to show their support for the employees of Plymouth Harbor.
