The Paris Community Hospital Volunteers are offering $3,000 in scholarships for the 2019-2020 school year:
Two graduating seniors from Paris Cooperative High School (one boy and one girl) will each receive a $1,000 scholarship. The scholarships are awarded to outstanding seniors who embody the character traits of the late Dr. James Acklin (scholastic ability, participation in athletics, and character).
The scholarships are funded through proceeds from the annual Doc Acklin Race. Dr. Acklin was a lifelong Paris resident and a family physician at Paris Community Hospital for 34 years. He was an avid athlete, coach, and fan of Paris High School athletics. He was a respected member of the Tigers’ cross country team that captured an unprecedented four consecutive state championships from 1946-49.
Horizon Health’s Department of Nursing is offering two $500 scholarships to applicants who are currently enrolled in, or have been accepted into, a nursing program. The foundation is funded through various sources, including the annual Nursing Twilight Walk honoring all community nurses, the Nursing Honor Guard program, and private donations.
Scholarship applications can be printed from this page. They also are available at school guidance offices in Edgar County and the admissions desk at Horizon Health.
Completed applications must be received by Monday, April 8. They can be submitted in any of the following ways:
