In honor of long-time employee and friend, Kendall J. Willardson, Sevier Valley Hospital annually donates two $1,000 scholarships to support students in our communities as they work to further their education. The two scholarship recipients will be selected from high school seniors in Sevier, Piute, and Wayne counties.
To be considered for the scholarship, applicants must meet the following criteria:
- Currently a high school senior (at a Sevier, Wayne, or Piute County high school)
- GPA of 3.0 or higher
- Pursuing a career in healthcare through higher education
- Actively involved in community service
- Actively involved in sports (high school or other)
Download and complete the scholarship application. Email the following to Brooke Heath (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday, April 21, 2017:
- Completed application
- 300-500 word essay
The essay should provide details on the student's experience with community service, as well as his/her plans for pursuing a career in healthcare, and what they would do with the scholarship award if selected.
Representatives from Sevier Valley Hospital and Kendall’s family will review the applicants and select two students to receive the $1,000 scholarship awards. Selection will be based on the student’s application, resume, and essay. Recipients will need to provide proof of college/school registration to Sevier Valley Hospital, as well as complete applicable tax forms in order to receive the award.
Sevier Valley Hospital will then make the $1,000 donation towards the student’s tuition or other schooling expenses (please allow at least four weeks processing time from the time the forms are submitted to the time the award check is received). Scholarship awards will be held for up to three years for those recipient(s) who will not be attending college/school for the following school year(s).
