Calloway, Owens and Blair –Win Jay Hospital Scholarship

Jay Hospital Awards Scholarships to Area Graduates

Three college-bound local students were recently awarded $1,000 scholarships by the Jay Hospital Employee Foundation. 

The scholarship recipients are Rebecca Calloway, Meredith Owens and Allison Blair, all graduates of Jay High School. Rebecca plans to attend Pensacola State College to study physical therapy. Meredith plans to study pre-med Biology at the University of Alabama. Allison plans to major in nursing at William Carey University. 

The foundation offers the scholarships each year to students attending high schools in the Jay Hospital service area. Applications are presented to the five member foundation board for approval. Special consideration is given to students seeking degrees in health care. Grades, class rank, ACT scores and volunteer hours are considered in the selection process. Students’ names are not included on the selection roster to ensure fairness. 

Employees at Jay Hospital support the foundation through payroll deduction giving. In addition to the scholarships, the foundation has used funds to assist employees in need, contribute to hurricane recovery, and to support charitable organizations such as the American Cancer Society, Make-A-Wish Foundation, American Lung Association and the Ronald McDonald House.
