Grant helps Oak Crest worker pursue education
Twice a year for the past 15 years, the Community Relations Committee of the Oak Crest Board of Trustees has awarded a $300 grant to a deserving employee to pursue educational or enrichment programming.
This grant is in addition to the annual employee scholarship for employees or their dependents pursuing an undergraduate degree or program of study. The grant is to allow additional opportunities for employees to pursue their individual goals.
This year’s grant was awarded to Molly Meier, a certified nurse’s aide who has worked at Oak Crest since June 2009. She is pursuing a nursing degree at Kishwaukee College. She is looking forward to applying all that she has learned and her work experiences into the growing field of medicine.
