JPMF Announces Karla Foster, RN, Scholarship Recipient

Jess Parrish Medical Foundation awarded the 2011 Karla Foster, RN, Memorial Scholarship of $3,000 to Vanessa Holanda, Parrish Medical Center (PMC) patient registrar/scheduler. The scholarship was established by Doug Foster in loving memory of his wife, Karla, who was tragically killed on September 11, 2006, by a hit and run driver. Karla had been a nurse at PMC for more than 22 years.

Holanda is currently enrolled in an associate’s degree nursing program at Brevard Community College. “I am very passionate about helping others.
