Deadline for health-care scholarship applications extended

Vale High School student Anay Paz talks with Michelle McKay, associate vice president of student services for Treasure Valley Community College, before a graduation celebration Friday in the Snake River Room at Saint Alphonsus Medical Center-Ontario. Scholarship applications for students going into health-care related employment are now being accepted for this year's nearly $22,000 in awards.

Ten students were lauded Friday night during a celebration at Saint Alphonsus Medical Center-Ontario for becoming the first graduating class of the CNA program offered by Malheur County Poverty to Prosperity. The program is one of three career technical education initiatives that enables a student to earn college credit while in high school. The ten students who completed the nursing program are now nursing assistants, and any of them who pass state boards in February, will become certified nursing assistants.
