Elizabeth T. Moseley scholarship winners

The VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital’s Auxiliary recognized the Elizabeth T. Moseley Scholarship Fund Winners Jessica Johnson, RN and Jennifer Weston, Acute Care Cardiac Monitor Tech.

Applicants for the scholarship, funded by donations to the “Tree of Love,” had to pursue a degree or certification that would enhance the employee’s capabilities in a position at the hospital. Both Johnson and Weston were selected after the committee evaluated each applicant’s required essay on how “receiving the scholarship would enhance your life.”

As part of Weston’s essay, she revealed how an organ transplant saved her life.

“I would love the opportunity to be present when others receive this life saving gift and to help take care of them,” she said. Weston is in the RN program at Southside Virginia Community College.

Johnson stated how much the scholarship would help offset the cost of books and supplies in her continued education being “13 months away from the completion of my post masters certificate in Pediatric Nurse Practitioner.” She attends Maryville University online.

Chief Executive Officer W. Scott Burnette and members of the Auxiliary were on hand to congratulate the winners and present the award.
