The Ridgecrest Regional Hospital Pink Ladies Auxiliary has awarded four $500 scholarships to Cerro Coso students seeking careers in nursing. The recipients included CCCC Vocational Nursing students: Blanch Jenkins, Marissa Lystrup, Melissa Bacher, and Judy Chieze, all on track to graduate this December.

Founded by Jan Hoagland in 1958, the Pink Ladies Auxiliary raises money through various fundraisers, private donations, no bake-bake sales, garage sales, and proceeds from the Gift Shop to fund these scholarships. Their efforts support Ridgecrest Regional Hospital's mission to provide outstanding healthcare in our community.
