Pink Ladies Auxiliary Gives Scholarships to Nursing Students

May 7, 2012

The Ridgecrest Regional Hospital Pink Ladies Auxiliary has awarded five $750 scholarships to students seeking careers in nursing. The recipients included two Cerro Coso Community College graduates: Heather Sinton ('09) and Jennifer Melchor ('09) now completing the Registered Nursing Program through Bakersfield College and three Licensed Vocational Nursing students on track to graduate this May: Ashley Heath, Sher Davis, and Michelle Korensky.

Founded by Jan Hoagland in 1958, the Pink Ladies Auxiliary raises money through various fundraisers, private donations, no bake-bake sales, garage sales, and proceeds from the Gift Shop to fund these scholarships. Their efforts support Ridgecrest Regional Hospital's mission to provide outstanding healthcare in our community.
