The 2021 winners of the scholarship were selected by a committee headed by Mary Cox. All three winners are nursing students.
Sophia Carrillo plans to attend nursing school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She chose the Wisconsin school for its reputation.
Breanna Casas and Tina Tran are in the nursing program at San Jose State. During the COVID shelter in place period Breanna volunteered at vaccination clinics while Tina worked with fellow nursing students to create a graphic pamphlet for children explaining the virus. The pamphlet turned out to be such a success that it is being used by the Health Dept. in Santa Clara County schools.
The committee includes Jennifer Tate, Joan Stempel, Donna Dicker, Sharon Frentner and John Jenkins.
