Thanks to donations made to the Williamson Medical Center Foundation and Williamson Medical Center’s Volunteer Auxiliary, we are able to provide four scholarships every year to local students pursuing degrees in health care.
Fay Porter Memorial Scholarship
The Fay Porter Memorial Scholarship is named after Fay Porter, who was a friend and longtime supporter of Williamson Medical Center. Applicants for this scholarship can be pursuing any type of degree in a health-related field. The scholarship ranges from $500 to $2,500 depending on the circumstances of the student awarded the scholarship.
Ike Brown Scholarship
The Ike Brown Scholarship is named in honor of Mr. Isaac “Ike” Brown, who served on Williamson Medical Center’s Board of Trustees for 24 years, the last six of which he was chairman. This scholarship is available to medical students only and will pay $2,500 toward medical school tuition to the student selected to receive this scholarship.
Kim McMurray Memorial Nursing Scholarship
The Kim McMurray Memorial Nursing Scholarship is named in memory of beloved nurse, Kim McMurray. She tirelessly served as a nurse at Williamson Medical Center for nearly 30 years and continued to work in various roles during years of arduous chemotherapy treatments for breast cancer. This scholarship provides an additional $500 and will be awarded to a nursing student accepted in the nursing curriculum who demonstrates a particular connection to cancer or the treatment of cancer.
Angie Tillman Nursing Scholarship
Provided by WMC’s Volunteer Auxiliary, the Angie Tillman Nursing Scholarship provides scholarships for students pursuing degrees in nursing. One student will receive a scholarship totaling $10,000. The recipient will receive $2,500 each year for four years, as long as he or she maintains academic and eligibility requirements.
