RHS awards future nurses scholarships

ROCKFORD (WREX) - The Rockford Health System helps some future nurses pay for their education.

Hospital officials awarded college scholarships to a group of 12 minority students Wednesday.  This year, RHS expanded the program to double the number of awards.

Each student has plans to go into nursing and will receive $2,000 tuition money for the next school year.

Esdras Medeles is a Rockford University nursing student who was awarded one of the scholarships.

"I'm really excited. It's really gonna help to pay for the expenses that I have throughout the year," said Medeles.

Recipients are not required to work at RHS to win the award.
