CAHME is pleased to announce the winners of scholarships that honor of two remarkable people and healthcare leaders.
The CAHME/Dawn Gideon Foundation Scholarship is named in memory of Dawn Gideon, who devoted her career to helping healthcare organizations succeed and who herself graduated from a CAHME-accredited MHA program at the University of Pittsburgh. This year’s winner is Callie Parks, a student at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Master of Health Administration Program. Callie’s nomination noted her intellectual and academic excellence, her leadership and communication skills, and her commitment to innovation and service to others.
The CAHME/Tim Campbell Scholarship is named for Tim Campbell, a CAHME board member who personified a commitment to service and volunteerism. This is the first year for the scholarship, and the winner is Jay McCutcheon, an MHA student at the University of Memphis Health Administration Program. While pursuing his studies, Jay also serves as a member of the Tennessee Army National Guard. He also volunteers with his school’s MHA Student Association which connects students to local serve local programs such as the Ronald McDonald House. Jay is known as a “focused, mission-driven servant leader.”
I can’t help but think both Dawn and Tim would be very pleased to know that Callie and Jay are receiving scholarships that reflect the values and qualities that Dawn and Tim embodied and encouraged in others.
Congratulations to both Callie and Jay. The healthcare industry looks forward to your leadership in the years ahead.
