JPMF Awards Thirteen Scholarships

Jess Parrish Medical Foundation (JPMF) awarded $15,000 in scholarships to 13 high school and college students for the 2011–2012 school year. Recipients live in the North Brevard County Hospital District and are pursuing a career in a health-related field. JPMF has been awarding scholarships to deserving students since 1990.

This year’s scholarship winners were: Jeremiah Butler and Virginia Leavel – Astronaut High School; Melissa Blaue – Merritt Island High School; Valerie Luman, Kelli Michael, Alana Nelson and Renee Shivel – Titusville High School; Martha Kraft – Emory University; Edith Bracho-Sanchez, Catherine Norris, Alexandra Parrish and Steven Raymond – University of Florida; and Reanne Graves – University of South Florida.

The JPMF scholarship committee is chaired by Bill Terry, who has been a volunteer at Parrish Medical Center (PMC) since 1994. Mr. Terry has accumulated more than 23,000 hours of volunteer service at PMC and has been on the JPMF Board of Directors since 2007. Other committee members are Hugh Brown, Richard Boggs, Santi Bulnes, Dot Hudson, Robert Jordan, Ron Norris, Howard Rinker, DDS, Barbara Terhune, Bernie Vinoski, MD, John Weaver and John Williams, Ph.D. “The scholarship committee takes their task of evaluating the applicants very seriously. It is with great pleasure we are able to award such deserving students these scholarships,” said Terry.
