Spring Hill, Florida (August 9, 2018) – Oak Hill Hospital is proud to announce that its Volunteer Association recently awarded a $3,000 scholarship to Madison Bleich, who has been a teen volunteer since September 2016. Madison has accumulated 141 hours of volunteer service to the hospital. She will be attending Pasco-Hernando State College to pursue an AA degree and then hopes to transfer to University of Florida or University of South Florida. Madison will go on to achieve her master’s degree in nursing. Her goal is to work in labor and delivery just like her mom, Julie Bleich, who happens to be one of Oak Hill Hospital’s charge nurses in the Maternity Suites.
Oak Hill Hospital volunteers have awarded over $320,000 in scholarships over the nearly three decades that the program has been in existence. The criteria for awarding the scholarships are based upon a student’s GPA, family income and dependents. The funds are received from revenue generated in the hospital’s volunteer gift shop and other fund raisers.
Scholarships are awarded to graduating seniors entering the human health care field. The scholarships are to be used for tuition and books.
“This is especially gratifying and exciting to know that I have the support of the Volunteer Association where I have spent so much time,” said Madison. “I look forward to one day following in my mother’s footsteps working in labor and delivery,” she added.
