To honor the work and dedication of Mr. Steve Lipstein, the Parkland Health Center Foundation established a scholarship in 2018 in his name. The annual scholarship is awarded to a St. Francois County high school senior furthering his or her education in the medical field.
The scholarship, a one-time award in the amount of $2,500, will be paid to the school of the recipient’s choice. Students wishing to apply can access scholarship applications from their high school guidance counselor or by emailing the Foundation Coordinator, Carla Crocker. Applications are due January 8, 2021.
Applications will be reviewed by the scholarship committee. The committee will select the top qualifying applications and present them to the full board of directors. The board of directors will approve the scholarship recipient in February 2021.
