Preparing the Health Care Leaders of Tomorrow
Each year the Anne L. Card Memorial Scholarship awards two $1,000 scholarships to area high school graduates seeking higher education in the health care field. The scholarship is named in honor of the late Anne L. Card who was a 50-plus year member of the Auxiliary and a dedicated volunteer at the hospital.
