Last year, 21 CLC team members grew professionally and personally as they benefited from $39,000 in tuition assistance through the Employee Scholarship Fund. This type of investment promotes a healthy, vibrant and successful future for CLC through the soaring talent of our associates.
CLC Team members are dedicated to the residents and communities they serve. They consider their work a true calling. Having the incredibly generous benefit of available funding for classes, specialized trainings and certifications allows CLC to retain top talent, makes the organization stronger, and enriches the relationships between team members and residents.
CNAs are pursuing Bachelor RN and LPN degrees, facilities team members are getting their certifications in air conditioning and heating, and some are obtaining master’s degrees in project management and the like. Others are honing their personal talents, like sign language and improv, to enrich the lives of residents.
Team members and residents are thriving because you care.
“The scholarship helped me pursue the degree sooner than I would have done so on my own. I would like to say thank you to our donors from the bottom of my heart. It has been of great benefit to my family and me.” -Kayleen Gibson, scholarship recipient
“It’s been a real treat to go back into the classroom, and something I never thought would be available to me. The scholarship has kick started me in the right direction. I’m truly thankful.” – Kendra Crites, scholarship recipient
The Employee Scholarship fund is made possible by CLC’s family of caring and generous donors who are making education more accessible with each donation received. We are so grateful for this support!
