Local students earn health care scholarships
Under the stewardship of the MidMichigan Health Foundation, $200,850 has been awarded to 158 students for the 2019-2020 school year from The Bernard F. and Melissa Anne Bailey Family Fund.
Since 2005, more than $2 million in total has been awarded in scholarship funds by the Bailey Family Fund to assist students as they pursue a career in health care.
The following local students have received scholarships for the upcoming school year:
¯ Alcona — DeLynn Greentree.
¯ Alpena — Amanda Radocy, Ami Milligan, Amy Northrup, Angela Soltysiak, Connor Freel, Georgeia Kolokithas, Joshua Oliver, Maia Haske, Mary (Molly) Schmidt, Mylee Girard, and Taylor Genschaw.
Examples of the health professions being pursued by these individuals include anesthesia, nursing, medicine, occupational therapy, pharmacy, physician assistant, physical therapy, radiology, respiratory therapy and speech therapy.
The Bailey Family Fund was initiated through a $3.3 million bequest left by Bernard Bailey to MidMichigan in 2004. Since Mr. Bailey’s bequest was placed in an endowment, a portion of the income earned from the fund is awarded annually to qualified individuals. More than 1,000 students have benefits from their legacy gift.
As lifelong residents of Midland, Bernard and Melissa Anne Bailey’s contributions in business, leadership and philanthropy have made a difference in the community for more than 50 years.
Applications for the 2020-2021 school year will be accepted from Dec. 1, 2019, through March 1, 2020.
