LifeStream congratulates Elise Ouelette of New Bedford and David Arena of Fall River as the recipients of the 2015 Sandra Cabral Nursing Scholarship. The two recipients will each receive a $2,000 award to further their nursing education. Congratulations Elise and David!
The scholarship, established in 2000, honors the noteworthy contributions to the field of nursing made by former LifeStream employee Sandra M. Cabral, who was a registered nurse and nursing coordinator. Reflecting Cabral’s career and LifeStream’s mission, the scholarship is offered to enhance the quality of medical support available to people with disabilities living in community settings.
“Although LifeStream traditionally awards the scholarship to one student annually, we were impressed with the credentials and applications for both Elise and David,” noted LifeStream President and CEO John Latawiec. “Subsequently, we felt that both were deserving of the scholarship.”
To be eligible, applicants must be pursuing a Registered Nurse degree, and be able to demonstrate a firm commitment to assisting people with disabilities in community-based settings at the present time or upon graduation.
