Morningside Ministries is pleased to announce the 2023 Loewenberg Caregiver Scholarship Award recipient, Melissa Arriola, a Licensed Vocational Nurse at Morningside at Menger Springs. Pat Crump, Morningside’s Chief Executive Officer, presented the scholarship award in the amount of $4,000 to Melissa during the Cibolo House All-Team meeting on July 26th. She is planning to use the scholarship toward her nursing studies as she plans to enroll in the Galen College of Nursing in the fall to pursue an RN license.
“Melissa is a team-oriented, supportive charge nurse,” says Shelley Heath, Director of Assisted Living, at Cibolo House. “When a curve ball comes, she will often say, ‘No worries, we’ll get it done.'”
Melissa is the seventh winner of this prestigious award which was established in 2017 by generous donors to honor the organization’s retiring president and CEO, Alvin A. Loewenberg, of 26 years. The program reflects the commitment of both Mr. Loewenberg and Morningside Ministries to help employees achieve their educational and career goals in pursuit of nursing excellence.
Congratulations to Melissa on receiving this special award and best wishes in her future studies!
