Personal Support Worker Professional Development Scholarship 2015 Recipient: Jenny Rodriguez
Thanks to our founding sponsor Saint Elizabeth Health Care, the PSW Professional Development Scholarship is awarded to one exceptional PSW working in home care to support his or her career advancement as a Personal Support Worker. The value of the scholarship is $2,000, which can be applied to tuition as part of an approved training program.
Tina Hamilton from Saint Elizabeth Health Care announced our winner on Tuesday, October 20 during the 2015 PSNO Conference. Jenny Rodriguez has worked in the field for over 10 years, and though the job has its up and downs, she says that loving her work as a PSW makes it easy.
She will apply her scholarship to the Activation Co-ordinator/Gerontology program at Georgian College, and use what she learns to improve the quality of life for her clients in the Community Home Assistance to Seniors (CHATS) Adult Day Program in Richmond Hill.
PSNO thanks Saint Elizabeth Health Care for sponsoring the scholarship again this year. Congratulations Jenny, we wish you the best in your studies!
