Five employee scholarship winners were celebrated recently at CLC’s Eagle Point Support Office. Following a delicious breakfast, recipients had the opportunity to share a bit about their educational journeys and how the Employee Scholarship Fund helped them reach new career goals.
One of the scholarship recipients, Holly Creek caregiver Frank Asiedu, shared details of his nearly six-year journey to receiving his Bachelor of Nursing degree from the University of Colorado. A caregiver in the Assisted Living neighborhood, Frank’s goal to become a registered nurse was made possible, in part, by generous Employee Scholarship Fund donors. Another recipient, Karol Marquez, Resident Services Associate at Clermont Park, interpreted an inspirational song with sign language, a skill she gained through scholarship funded online courses in American Sign Language.
This year, CLC has already awarded more than $23,000 in employee scholarships to ten team members. Because of the generosity of our donors, recipients are able further their education and better serve residents.
If you are interested in making dreams come true for more team members, consider supporting the Employee Scholarship Fund with a tax-deductible donation.
