The Association of Multicultural Members of Partners (AMMP) recently celebrated its 2015 Scholarship Award recipients during its annual Scholarship Award Breakfast in the Zinner Breakout Room on March 7. BWHC President Betsy Nabel, MD, presented the awards to scholarship recipients during the ceremony.
AMMP is committed to the advancement, retention, recruitment and development of multicultural professionals into leadership roles across Partners. Founded in 1998, the group provides scholarships to help expand access to a variety of career opportunities within Partners. The award provides financial assistance to multicultural staff members pursuing professional certificates, associate or bachelor’s degrees.
“I admire you for taking on the challenge of pursuing a degree while working and, in some cases, supporting a family at the same time,” said Nabel. “It is very important to me to create a work environment where all individuals have every opportunity to develop themselves into the people that they want to be. I am so proud of all that you have accomplished and wish you the best of luck.”
The award recipients are Eunice Charles, of the Emergency Department; Rhonda Glenn, of Rehabilitation Services; Lucy Kirakous, of the Fish Center for Women’s Health; Kimberly Olmilla, of Patient Care Services; Maxine Rose, of the ICU Float Pool; Deborah Sitter, LPN, of Dermatology; Loren Valdez, of Obstetrics and Gynecology; and Jahkia Yancey, of the Connors Center for Women and Newborns. At the ceremony, Nabel also thanked AMMP volunteers for their integral work benefitting the BWH community.
