On Tuesday, July 28, Northeastern Center presented the 2020, $750 Jane George Scholarship to DeKalb High School graduate, Chloe Taylor from Corunna, Indiana.
This fall, Chloe will be attending Ball State University where she will be pursuing a degree in Child Life with a minor in Psychology.
Dottie Fuentes, Northeastern Center’s Chief Clinical Officer made the check presentation to Chloe.
College-bound seniors from Steuben, LaGrange, DeKalb, & Noble counties, considering a career in mental health were encouraged to participate in the 2020 scholarship contest. Entrants were asked to submit an essay focusing on two themes: 1 . “What in my life has motivated me to pursue a career in mental health.” 2. “How I plan to contribute to the future of mental health.” Judges made up of Northeastern Center staff, selected Chloe, from all entrants, as the winner of the 2020 Scholarship.
The scholarship was created to remember Jane George, Nurse Case Manager, who was a dedicated Northeastern Center employee for more than seven years until her death from cancer in October of 2002.
Next year’s scholarship competition will begin in February and the winner will be selected in May. Area students and teachers interested in the competition may contact Northeastern Center’s Administration Building in Kendallville, Indiana (260) 347-2453.
