2023 Scholarship Recipient
Logan Williams - Emmanuel College, Boston, MA

"My wonderful teacher at my technical school inspired me to participate in a volunteer internship at the Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center," says Logan. "Overall, this volunteer program sparked my interest in the medical field and I now know that I am very passionate about working in the hospital environment."

"Logan was a great addition to our summer program," says Katelyn Stoddard, Volunteer Coordinator at Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center. "She received remarkable accolades from her department managers and spent every volunteer shift going above and beyond for the patients she worked with. For example, on one occasion she spent hours with a cardiac patient helping her organize her room and fold her laundry, just to make it feel a little more like home."

2022 Scholarship Recipient
Jordan Taylor - Anna Maria College, Paxton, MA

"When I applied to Anna Maria College in 2019, I quickly saw how this school was going to help shape my career and shape me as a person. I chose to attend Anna Maria College to pursue a career in the fire service field with hopes of becoming a full-time firefighter when I graduate from their program. Little did I know how much of an impact the fire science program would have on me. This program is more than just learning about the different aspects of firefighting, this program cares about me and my success. By the end of my four years at Anna Maria College, I hope to have gained a wide variety of knowledge that won't just help me in the fire service world but will help me in everyday life. Receiving the IANE scholarship, will take some of the financial burdens off me and allow me to continue to flourish within my college community. With the help of this scholarship, I will be able to better my education and achieve my dreams of becoming a full-time fire fighter and serving my community."
