Each year the Pomerene Health Foundation awards a one-time $4,000 scholarship to assist a local high school senior or college/university student who is pursuing a health-care career. The student must have parents employed by Pomerene Hospital or Health Professionals of Holmes County Inc. After reviewing this year’s applications, the Pomerene Health Foundation has awarded Rachel Schmucker the $4,000 scholarship.

There are several criteria that must be met in the application process to be considered for this award. The student must be accepted or enrolled into a four-year or two- to three-year technical school in a health care-related field, have a cumulative high school GPA of 3.25, a minimum ACT score of 21 or SAT of 1,000, submit high school or college transcripts, provide one letter of recommendation, and submit a 200-word essay.

After reviewing each application for academic excellence, financial need, ACT/SAT scores, and extracurricular activities/community involvement and other achievements, Schmucker was chosen to receive the scholarship.

Schmucker is soon to be a sophomore at Taylor University in Indiana with a biology focus on allied health. She had an ACT score of 28, a 4.0 GPA and was deemed “Class Rank 1” at Central Catholic High School, where she graduated in 2019.
