2016 Casey White Memorial Scholarship

Click Here to download the 2016 Casey White Memorial Scholarship Application

The Katahdin Valley Health Center Casey White Memorial Scholarship was established in 2012 in memory of V. Casey White. Casey had returned to college after many years in the workforce to pursue a career in Health Care and ultimately obtain his licensure as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Once Casey became an FNP, he practiced for over 30 years providing health care to the people in the Houlton area region. After his untimely passing in February of 2012, Katahdin Valley Health center chose to honor Casey’s memory by creating a scholarship. The scholarship is for individuals with a commitment like Casey’s to pursue higher education while being a member of the workforce, a non-traditional student and well after high school. The KVHC Casey White Memorial scholarship is a $3,000 award that is disbursed annually. The award is paid upon successful completion of the first semester of college with a 2.5 or higher GPA on a 4.0 scale. Recipients may re-apply for this award annually for three years.

All forms must be submitted and postmarked by no later than April 15th. The Scholarship Committee will review applications, and decisions will be mailed to applicants by no later than May 30th.

KVHC Donates Christmas Gifts to Local Children

Katahdin Valley Health Center hosted its second annual “Giving Tree” event to provide Christmas gifts to local families.

KVHC employees wanted to make a difference in their communities this Holiday Season. KVHC partnered with local schools to determine what the children would like for Christmas. A Christmas tree was put up at each clinic and decorated with cards listing each child’s Christmas wish. The employees came together and through generous donations and internal fundraising activities raised enough money to provide 57 gifts to children in the surrounding communities. In addition to the gifts, KVHC also donated money to its local schools to assist families with meals for their children during the school break.

This initiative was directed by KVHC’s Eligibility Staff, Megan Day, Tina McNinch, and Mary Michaud. Megan says of the Giving Tree, “Working on KVHC’s Giving Tree over the past 2 years has been a very rewarding experience for all of us. As a child, Christmas time was always the most exciting time of the year. I remember the anticipation on Christmas Eve and then waking up bright and early filled with the excitement only a child can feel. We started our giving tree initiative to ease the financial burden on families in our communities and ensure the children get to enjoy the magic that is Christmas.”
