    The Washington County Community Foundation will be accepting applications for the Jinny Scifres Scholarship. The scholarship is for any individual
    planning to attend a post-secondary accredited institution in the 2010-2011 school year and plans to pursue studies in the medical field. The scholarship payout this year is $800.00. The number and dollar amount of scholarships will be determined by the committee. Preference may be given to non-traditional nursing students who may be returning to school after starting a family or career, as did Jinny.
     After starting a family, Jinny made the tough decision to return to school and study nursing.  After graduation, she began her nursing career at Washington County Memorial Hospital as an Emergency Room Nurse. Jinny's love of nursing eventually lead her to several promotions and back to school once again. She eventually became the Director of Patient Care Services. Jinny died in the fall of 2000, after bravely battling bone cancer. Her family and many friends established this scholarship fund in her memory, to assist others who, like Jinny, return to school to study nursing after starting a family or career.    
    Applications may be picked up at the Washington County Community Foundation office in the Community Learning Center on or after March 17. Application deadline is 3:30 pm April 26. For more information, you may contact Judy Johnson or Lindsey Wade-Swift at 883-7334.
