The Ridgecrest Regional Hospital Pink Ladies Auxiliary has awarded $500 scholarships to Cerro Coso students seeking careers in nursing. The recipients included CCCC Vocational Nursing students: Lori Bollinger, Menchie Schneiter, Chrissie Jensen, Luis Carrillo, and Barbara Dolan, all on track to graduate this December. They also awarded a scholarship to CCCC graduate Kellee Clodt from the Career Care Institute.
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.
