CPMC Employees Award Scholarship to Local Student

Submitted by Paula Collins


Cabinet Peaks Medical Center had the privilege of awarding a local graduating Libby High School senior with a college scholarship.

The scholarship is a gift from the employees of Cabinet Peaks Medical Center to encourage area youth to pursue degrees in the field of medicine.  CPMC employees donate to these scholarship funds throughout the year via payroll deduction, and those who donate sit on the scholarship committee that choses that award recipients.

Th local student who received the $1000 individual scholarship this year was TJ Andersen from Libby.  The student’s applications were reviewed by the CPMC scholarship committee, and the recipient was chosen based on his academics, leadership, school activities, and community service.  Students were also asked to write an essay on their reasons for choosing a career in healthcare.

In addition to proving their involvement in one of these program, the students were required to show that they are currently accepted as a full-time student at a college, university, or trade school as well as explain their educational and career goals.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer these scholarships to young adults in our service area,” stated Andre Mehan, Human Resources Manager at Cabinet Peaks Medical Center.  “We understand the importance of giving back to our youth, and recognize the costs associated with getting a college education.  The seniors who receive scholarships from Cabinet Peaks Medical Center have plans to enter the medical field in one way or another, and we know that some of them may consider coming back home to serve the patients at Cabinet Peaks Medical Center.  We hope that our scholarships help all of these students achieve their educational and career goals.”
