Frederick, MD (Vocus) November 9, 2010
Two area students have received the first scholarships from the Capitol Vein and Laser Center’s Health Professions Scholarship Fund. Nicole Cimino, a graduate of Linganore High School, and Richard Gilbert, a graduate of Walkersville High School, are the recipients.
The Health Professions Scholarship Fund was established in 2009 by Dr. Paul McNeill and Dr. Garth Rosenberg of Capitol Vein and Laser Center. “Our goal was to create scholarships for residents of Frederick County, Maryland who want to pursue undergraduate or graduate level studies in medicine, nursing, and other healthcare-related professions," said Dr. Paul McNeill.
Dr. Garth Rosenberg said “The need for specially-trained healthcare professionals continues to grow, but unfortunately, so does the cost to obtain a degree and training. At Capitol Vein and Laser, we’re grateful for the support the community has shown of our practice, and wanted to give something back. Helping others pursue healthcare careers seemed like a great way to do it.”
Scholarship recipient Nicole Cimino attends the University of Maryland School of Medicine and plans to become a doctor. She said “I’m really excited and thankful for this scholarship, because it will not only help pay my tuition, but I want to practice in Maryland and contribute to healthcare in my own community—and this scholarship will help make that possible.”
Richard Gilbert attends Shenandoah University, and is enrolled in a Masters Program for Physician Assistant Studies. “I am very grateful for this scholarship because it reduces the financial burden of my education,” he said. “The scholarship puts me that much closer to earning a degree that will provide the knowledge and skills I need to make a difference in other people’s lives.”
Since 1986, The Community Foundation of Frederick County has provided more than $26 million in scholarships to area students who might otherwise not be able to attend college or trade school and grants to area nonprofits serving the community. This tremendous accomplishment is a direct result of generous donors who touch the future with each donation, leaving a positive impact of lasting change for the Frederick County community.
