Two Stewart Scholarship Recipients at MSHCC

Two more employees of Market Square Health Care Center (MSHCC) were recently awarded  The Gladys Stewart Book Scholarship Fund .  Cristina Dingley and Amanda Mitchell, who both work on Andrews East as CNA's and medication technicians, and were caregivers for Gladys Stewart, were presented their scholarships by Philip C. DuBois, Administrator at Market Square on Friday, June 27th.

The Stewart Book Scholarship was founded by Mrs. Stewart's family in her memory a few months ago.  The goal of the fund is to assist Market Square staff and their children as they aspire to enhance their education and skills.  The Stewart family recognizes that there are few scholarships available to help with book expenses, and books can generate substantial expenses for students.

Of the scholarship and the recipients, Henry Stewart, scholarship founder shares, "This scholarship was begun in recognition of the wonderful care Mother received at Market Square during her years there.  I am especially pleased that the two recipients were caregivers for Mother during her stay."

Funds for these two scholarships were made possible in part by a donation to the Stewart Book Scholarship fund by the Cressy family in memory of Donald and Vera Cressy and in honor of the care they received while at MSHCC.

Both award recipients are going to school at Central Maine Community College.  Cristina begins the nursing program this fall and Amanda is working on pre-requisite courses she needs prior to entering the nursing program.

DuBois states of the recipients, "Both Cristina and Amanda have shown themselves to be dedicated, compassionate, and intelligent caregivers who will also be assets to the nursing profession.  The Stewart family and Market Square are pleased to assist them in pursuing their goals."
