Mercy Foundation North is accepting applications for the Chris Lawley Memorial Scholarship for Nursing Students.

The Chris Lawley Memorial Scholarship for Nursing Students was established in memory of Chris Lawley, R.N., longtime employee of St. Elizabeth Community Hospital.  The first scholarship was awarded in 2011.  A goal of the program is to support nursing students as they complete their education with the hope that they will pursue their nursing career in Tehama County at St. Elizabeth Community Hospital or another health care facility.  Additional gifts from the community to this fund are welcomed by making a donation to:  Mercy Foundation North, Attention: The Chris Lawley Memorial Scholarship.

Mercy Foundation North is a non-profit organization sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy and is dedicated to supporting their activities throughout Northern California.  Guided by the Sisters’ mission to care for those in need of physical, spiritual, social, and emotional healing, the foundation raises money for St. Elizabeth Community Hospital, as well as other sponsored works of the Sisters in the north state.
