Marysville, CA – On May, 24, 2018, the Rideout Health Foundation
awarded scholarships to 16 local high school seniors.
“Providing inspired health care to our community can only happen
if we invest in the education and nurture the growth of the next generation
of talented healthcare professionals here in our community”, says
Jeff Swanson, Executive Director of the Rideout Health Foundation. “And
we have some amazing high school students who are worthy of that investment”.
The Rideout Health Foundation annually invests in worthy students to ensure
that we will have a strong healthcare workforce in our community for many
generations to come. Scholarships are awarded through two programs to
area high school students pursuing healthcare-related courses of study.
The Dorothy C. Wisner Memorial Loan Fund was created in the mid-1950s as a Nurse Recruitment Loan Fund by the Yuba-Sutter-Colusa
Medical Society Auxiliary. Today the Dorothy C. Wisner Teen Leadership
Council Scholarship provides support to high school students who are seeking
to learn about and enroll in a program of study that leads to a career
in the health or medical profession.
The Rideout Health Foundation Scholarship Fund was created in 1996 by the Fremont-Rideout Foundation to assist and encourage
area high school seniors interested in vocational or professional training
in the medical field. These scholarships are supported each year by the
fundraising efforts of the Adventist Health and Rideout Hospital Auxiliary.
Both scholarships are the result of the generous philanthropic spirit in
the community. “The generosity of one individual can impact countless
lives. Nearly 70 years later, the Dorothy Wisner Fund continues to grow
in its impact,” says Swanson. “This investment not only changes
a student’s life, it provides them with the ability to impact our
community health and well-being well into the future as a nurse, physician,
or pharmacist -- and that is priceless.” To support the Rideout
