Scholarship Program at St. Ann’s Community Allows Employees to Further Their Education

Thanks to generous donors, 27 employees of St. Ann’s Community received scholarships this year to help further their education.

On August 11, those recipients were honored at the 9th Annual Employee Scholarship Reception held at St. Ann’s in the Bishop Kearney Auditorium.  Keynote speaker was Dr. Richard Gangemi, former Chief Medical Officer, Rochester General Hospital, who has a long association with St. Ann’s including past membership on the Board of Directors.

Begun in 2008, the Employee Scholarship Program has awarded 161 employees with $245,000 in scholarships.

“The program is totally donor-funded, made possible by generous gifts from St. Ann’s employees, grateful families, patients, our board members, business partners and the community at large,” said Steve Smith, Vice President, St. Ann’s Foundation, which administers the program. “No one knows senior care like our employees, and we’re proud to invest in them as part of our commitment to our residents.”

Below are this year’s recipients. Congratulations to all!
