WOMEN’S ASSOCIATION FOR
MORRISTOWN MEDICAL CENTER
ANNOUNCES 2020 SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS
The Women’s Association for Morristown Medical Center (WAMMC) is pleased to announce its 2020 Scholarship Awards. WAMMC Scholarships are awarded each year to outstanding Morristown Medical Center employees to help further their continuing education, development and leadership skills in the hospital and healthcare field.
WAMMC’s Scholarship Program dates back to 1957 and supports the staff at Morristown Medical Center by granting scholarships to hospital employees pursuing careers in the healthcare field. WAMMC Scholarship recipients are chosen based on applicants demonstrating extraordinary care and service to patients, their peers, colleagues and the community.
In 2020, WAMMC’s Scholarship Awards Committee awarded $50,000 in scholarships to 25 employees. This includes $4,000 raised by WAMMC’s Chatham and Cromwell Twigs which enabled us to provide two additional employees with scholarship support. WAMMC’s ongoing commitment to its Scholarship Program can be attributed to the hard work of successful fundraising and the generous donations of WAMMC members.
“We are pleased to be able to award these scholarships to an exceptional group of Morristown Medical Center employees, especially at a time when they are being called to the front line to care for patients of the Covid-19 virus,” said Katie Nolle, President, Women’s Association for Morristown Medical Center. “We are grateful to all of our donors for their generous contributions to this program, enabling us to continue our Scholarship Program to assist hospital employees in attaining their advanced healthcare-related educations.”
“We are more than grateful to the Women’s Association for their ongoing support of our employees through its Scholarship Program,” said Carol Jones, MSN, RN, NE-BC, Chief Nursing Officer, Morristown Medical Center. “As we have experienced with this Covid-19 crisis, continuous education for our nurses is critical to our expert care of our patients and the community.”
