Employee Scholarship Fund of Jenner’s Pond congratulates 9 employees

Pin It

This year the Employee Scholarship Fund of Jenner’s Pond is  awarded nine scholarships to deserving student employees. Each scholarship of $3,000 reflects the generous support of the resident donors for the work and dedication of our returning and part time high school scholars. Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, these employees dashed around campus, constantly adjusting to changing circumstances to bring our residents meals, treats, and much needed joy.

In order to qualify for a scholarship, each student must have worked a certain number of hours and submitted an application with an essay. Winners are then determined by a volunteer selection committee. Two of our awardees from last year returned and have qualified along with seven current high school seniors.

Please join us in congratulating the 2021 awardees:

Kaylin Cousin (Duquesne University, majoring in Nursing), Madeline Stancil (Gwynedd Mercy University, majoring in Nursing), Jessica Smith (Hartwick College, majoring in Nursing), Kirstie Szewczyk (West Chester University, majoring in Psychology), Jesus Cordova-Rangel (West Chester University, majoring in Cell & Molecular Biology), Rosalie Galli (Delaware County Community College, majoring in Nursing), Jasmine Rivera-Salinas (Duquesne University, majoring in Nursing), Evelyn Lara (Delaware County Community College, majoring in Early Childhood Education), and Fatima Ayllon (Temple University, majoring in Health Information Management).

Recipients were asked how Jenner’s Pond has prepared them to move forward:

“The skills I acquired at Jenner’s Pond helped me grow into the person I am today, “says Fatima Ayllon.

“Whether it’s communication, teamwork, responsibility, respect, or handling constructive criticism, any experience from here will forever impact positively in my future career as a nurse,” noted Jasmine Rivera-Salinas.

We congratulate all of these hard-working and deserving student employees and we look forward to seeing all that they accomplish!
