One of the area organizations that gives scholarships to students pursuing post-high school education is Mended Hearts.
Mended Hearts consists of individuals, and members of their families, who have undergone some sort of heart procedure. They have a vested interest in the continued availability of quality medical professionals and their scholarships go to nursing students. This year, Mended Hearts gave $250 scholarships to Crystal Jadallah and Tiffany Phillips. Both are students in the local licensed practical nurse (LPN) program.
