Karen Johnson, Executive Director
Western Maryland Health System Foundation
Fourteen years ago, the Western Maryland Health System Foundation made a commitment to provide scholarships for local students pursuing higher education as healthcare professionals. Using donated funds, scholarships were developed, with generous terms offering as much as $5000 per semester. This spring, the program crossed a significant milestone: to date, over $1,000,000 has been committed to WMHS scholars. One hundred sixty-four individual students have been given the chance to fulfill their dreams. Untold thousands of patients have been cared for by those very students.
The WMHS Foundation is honored to be a part of making dreams come true. And in addition to the original scholarships, we now manage scholarships for several individuals or families who have established those opportunities. If you would like to consider creating a “health care dream” scholarship, we’d be happy to help you. The Foundation number is 240-964-8003, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
