Steve Engro from the New Orleans American Red Cross Chapter presented Xander Savage, a Mimosa Park Elementary student, with a certificate for raising $570.25 by operating a lemonade stand in his neighborhood on National Lemonade Day.
Xander participated in the recent class project when he and his classmates were encouraged to raise money for tornado victims by doing chores. The first graders collectively raised $1,101.79. First-grade teacher Gayle Robert wants all students to know that no matter how young, you are never too young to get involved to make a difference.
Local graduates awarded by River Parishes Hospital
The River Parishes Hospital Auxiliary recently awarded $1,000 scholarships to three exemplary high school seniors: Gerard Giangrosso, a student at St. Charles Catholic High School; Jeanne Simar, a student at Lutcher High School; and Elise deBruler, a student at Hahnville High School.
The River Parishes Hospital Auxiliary/William S. Johnston, M.D. Scholarship is awarded to exemplary high school seniors who plan to enter college in a four-year healthcare degree program.
Each year, the Auxiliary holds fundraisers to benefit their scholarship fund. They also receive donations from River Parishes Hospital, the River Parishes Hospital Medical Staff and various community organizations.
In April, they send letters to all area high schools inviting qualified students who plan to pursue a healthcare career to apply.
Winners are selected based on their academic achievements, personal goals and aspirations for the future.
“As the community hospital for the river parishes area, we want to help area students fulfill their goals of becoming healthcare professionals,” said Gerald A. Fornoff, Chief Executive Officer. “We look forward to welcoming these students back one day as part of the River Parishes Hospital family.”
DeBruler was also named the recipient of the 2011 Robert C. Menezes Sr. Memorial Community Scholarship. The $5,000 scholarship is awarded to a student who has demonstrated leadership abilities, academic achievement, and contributions to the local community. The scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior selected by the school and is in memory of Bob Menezes, who was coach and later principal of Hahnville High School for 20 years until his death from cancer in 1975.
