Jill Dreyer Scholarship winners announced

Posted: Friday, February 26, 2016

Two Parkview Huntington Hospital staff members have been awarded the Jill Dreyer Scholarship for the 2016 spring semester. Molly Irick and Ann Mason, RN, both of Huntington, each received $750 toward their education costs for the current academic semester.

Irick is a patient care tech in Inpatient Services. She is pursuing a bachelor of science in nursing at Huntington University. Mason is a registered nurse in Inpatient Services. She is enrolled in course work for a bachelor of science in nursing at Western Governors University.

The awards were announced by Mike Perkins, director, Parkview Huntington Foundation, which administers the Jill Dreyer Scholarship funds.

“This scholarship is funded exclusively by contributions from Parkview Huntington Hospital co-workers during the foundation’s annual employee giving campaign,” he noted. “It is a great example of generosity at work.”

The Jill Dreyer Scholarship provides financial assistance to Parkview Huntington Hospital personnel pursuing educational studies in the nursing profession, and provides reimbursement to registered nurses at Parkview Huntington Hospital who successfully complete final examinations for professional certification or recertification. The scholarship was established in 2004 in memory of the late Jill Dreyer. Initial funding came from individuals who had worked with Dreyer while she was a registered nurse at Parkview Huntington Hospital. The scope of the scholarship was expanded in 2010 to provide a total of four $750 scholarships each year to full and part-time Parkview Huntington Hospital employees pursuing a nursing education.

Since 2004, the Jill Dreyer Scholarship program has provided $21,250 in assistance to 23 of the hospital’s caregivers.
