Covenant Village of Colorado and Covenant Retirement Communities (CRC), a non-profit, faith-based, senior living organization headquartered in Skokie, Ill., announce a scholarship recipient who is part of the Employee Dependent Scholarship program.
Maria Pham graduated from Thornton High School in May 2016 and was awarded $1,400. She is a current student at Regis University, Denver, studying nursing. She is the daughter of Covenant Village of Colorado employee, Diep Doan. Pham already gained valuable experience as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) at Alpine Living Center, a PRN (CNA) at Covenant Village of Colorado, and as a volunteer at Lutheran Medical Center. She hopes to be the first generation of her family to graduate with a college degree and become a registered nurse.
CRC recognizes and supports lifelong learning as a powerful means that can provide young adults skills and values needed to be capable and compassionate individuals. Recipients are current or recent high school graduates who receive funds through tuition reimbursement and are dependents of employees at Covenant Village of Colorado. Pham was chosen based on an essay and criteria demonstrating clear educational and career pursuits that are consistent with CRC values, along with involvement in extra-curricular activities.
