Madonna Living Community Foundation Scholarships

Madonna Living Community Foundation Scholarships

Two very important scholarships are annually available as a benefit to all Madonna Living Community of Rochester employees with thanks to two very special past resident families who believe in our mission of service by providing these endowed scholarships customized to the benefactor’s wishes.

Congratulations to the 2018 Dr. William P. Wharton $500 Scholarship winners: Rennie Herrera and Samantha Miller.

Congratulations also to the 2018 T. Emil & Mary Anne Zahasky $1,000 Scholarship winners include Mariah Herzog, Tina Mann, and Jawaher (JoJo) Binhamoodah.

A statement by Kim Wharton (daughter of Dr. William P. Wharton) read at the scholarship ceremony referenced what Rennie Herrera said in her application stating, “her Madonna Towers of Rochester patients were always telling her to not give up no matter how tough it gets, you have to work hard to get where you want to be in life.” Kim said, “This statement was the exact words her father said many times over to his Madonna Living Community health team, his patients, coworkers, friends, and family as he continued to mentor and inspire the next generations in healthcare.”
