$25,000 Scholarship Fund Created, thanks to UGI Utilities, Inc.
Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences is pleased to announce a new scholarship fund established by UGI Utilities, Inc. with a $25,000 pledge to our recently concluded Building Futures Campaign (2015-2017). The UGI Utilities, Inc. Scholarship will provide two $2,500 annual scholarships to PA College students enrolled in any academic program with demonstrated financial need.
“UGI is committed to improve the communities we serve,” said Keith Dorman, Vice President of Communications and Community Relations. “Our business is literally woven into the fabric of our communities. As our communities prosper, so does our Company. Ensuring that students have access to quality education programs that lead to good jobs and a secure future is a significant part of UGI’s community investment approach.”
This year’s recipients of the UGI Utilities, Inc. Scholarship are Morgan Hoffman and Juliann Knollmeyer.
Morgan Hoffman is from Reading, PA and is currently enrolled in our 3-year BSN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) program with an anticipated graduation date of 2020. She aspires to practice as a bedside nursing in a hospital intensive care unit and ultimately plans to continue her education so that she can become a nurse anesthetist. Morgan is deeply grateful for this award, and shares: “It means so much to me to have someone invest in my future and help me to achieve my goals in this intense three-year program.”
Juliann Knollmeyer lives in Willow Street, PA and is enrolled in our Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) degree program with an anticipated graduation date of December 2018. Her father’s long-term battle with meningitis motivated Juliann to pursue a career in nursing, so that she might care for others the way people took care of him. Juliann is deeply appreciative of this award, and shares: “The generosity and benevolence of UGI Utilities has given me the ability to follow my dreams. To know that they have decided to invest in my future makes me feel so honored and supported. It has shown me that all of my hard academic work has paid off.”
