Horizon Health Awards Dr. Phipps Scholarship

Hannah Bowers, patient services representative at Horizon Health, is the recipient of the 2021 Dr. Leland Phipps Memorial Scholarship. Bowers, of Paris, is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in biomedical science at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.

The $1,000 scholarship, made possible by the Carle Foundation, is awarded to a Horizon Health employee to further his or her education in the healthcare field.

“I have chosen to become a physician to serve my community,” Bowers said.

Bowers’ name will be added to the Dr. Leland Phipps Memorial Scholarship plaque that is on permanent display near the main entrance to the Paris Clinic. The plaque reads, “Time will never erase the work you have accomplished and the lives you have positively affected.”

Dr. Phipps, a longtime Paris family medicine physician, died suddenly on May 22, 2017.
