The Visiting Nurses Foundation awarded a $1,000 scholarship to Emma Moon, a 2018 graduate of Chehalis High School.  Emma is the daughter of Dean and Amy Moon.

“Our Foundation is so proud to present a scholarship to a student who is passionate about Nursing. Just like the heart of our Foundation, she is committed to the individual relationship and impact that is made on the patient and the family as a whole. We could not be more proud of Emma and the amazing things she will do in her future.”  Trevor Elliott, Foundation Board President.

Emma is a top student and leader at Chehalis High School while also participating in sports.  She is a compassionate and giving student who volunteers her time to many organizations. Emma is attending George Fox University in the fall to study Nursing with the goal of achieving a BSN. She has future plans to further her education to earn a Master’s of Science Degree in Nursing and become a nurse practitioner.

Visiting Nurses Foundation Executive Director, Jenny Collins states: “Emma embodies the perfect candidate for a scholarship from our foundation.  She is a well-rounded and devoted student and community member.  We are particularly impressed by her dedication to community service.  This is the first of six healthcare scholarships we hope to award for 2018.”
