Santa Ynez Valley students win scholarships
Each year, Santa Ynez Valley Cottage Hospital Auxiliary offers $3,000 scholarships to Santa Ynez Valley students graduating from high school or continuing college and pursuing a career in the medical field. Three candidates were selected for 2012, and each received $3,000 scholarships.
Tyler Dalo graduated this month from Santa Ynez Valley High School and has been accepted at San Diego State University, where he’ll pursue a bachelor’s degree in pre-physical therapy. Taylor Eldevik also graduated this month from Santa Ynez Valley High School. She’ll be attending UC Santa Barbara as a pre-med student to become a doctor specializing in autism research. Julio Saucedo is a Santa Ynez Valley Cottage Hospital emergency room technician and employee for 12 years. He’ll be pursuing his long-time goal to become a certified radiology technician, studying at Santa Barbara City College.
The Auxiliary Scholarship selection committee consists of Jean Pack, Kathy Erb, and Pat Foxen.
“I am so proud of the hard work and dedication our Hospital Auxiliary does, not only for the hospital but also for the community at large. They raise every single cent for these scholarships through their incredible volunteer efforts,” hospital vice president Wende Cappetta said in a press release.
