Hillside Auxiliary Creates Nursing Scholarship for Kent State Trumbull

WARREN, Ohio – A $25,000 gift from the Auxiliary at Hillside Rehabilitation Hospital will establish an endowed scholarship for nursing students at Kent State University at Trumbull.

“Scholarships are so critical to student success,” said Dave Smith, director of philanthropy at Kent State Trumbull, in a statement. “The need is greater now than ever as students continue to face unforeseen financial challenges associated with the current pandemic. This generous gift will provide much-needed assistance to future nurses that will work in our local hospitals and health-care facilities.”

The donation is funded by proceeds from sales at Hillside’s gift shop, which is run by the Auxiliary. The volunteer group was founded in 2017 and supports health and wellness programs throughout the Mahoning Valley. Those interested in volunteering can contact Joan Guido at 330 637 0805.

The bachelor of science in nursing program can be completed in its entirety at Kent State Trumbull. For more information on the program, visit Kent.edu/trumbull.
