Martha Vandervoort Memorial Scholarship

Congratulations to our newest scholarship recipient, Katelyn Downing

The Martha Vandervoort Memorial Scholarship was established in 2016 to invest in students who have made an impact in their community through leadership and community service. The purpose of this scholarship is to recognize future healthcare workers who reflect the legacy of Martha’s servant heart and benevolent character. The scholarship is valued at $3,000 per year and is renewable for four years for a total value of $12,000 towards the four-year college or university of the recipients’ choosing.

Recipients of the scholarship are chosen through an application and interview process with a selection committee. To be eligible for the scholarship, students must have a minimum 3.0 GPA, going into a healthcare-related program of study and reflect the embodiment of community service and charity.

This year’s recipient is Katelyn Downing, a graduating senior from Jacksonville High School. Katelyn will be attending Jacksonville State University in the fall as a sophomore thanks to her participation in the Jacksonville State University Jump Start Dual Enrollment Program. She will graduate with a 4.0 GPA and 52 college credit hours all while working a part time job and playing on the varsity volleyball team. To add to these accomplishments, Katelyn is also a member of the D.D. Club, a community service organization which has led her to volunteer opportunities with Calhoun County Sports Hall of Fame, Relay for Life, United Cerebral Palsy, and her favorite, the Kiwanis Club’s annual shopping trip for children in need.
