Each year the Delta County Memorial Hospital Volunteers accept scholarship applications from Delta County area high school seniors who are interested in pursuing a health related career.
This year $3,500 in scholarships were awarded to Shelby Wilson, Simon Driver and Haley Park.
Wilson, a Delta High School graduate, received $1,000 for her studies at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs. Her goal is to become a physician's assistant.
Simon Driver is home schooled. He received a $1,000 scholarship, plus a $500 award as a Junior Volunteer. He plans to study biochemistry at Colorado Mesa University and eventually go into research.
Haley Park, Paonia High School, received $1,000 to pursue a degree in nursing through Grand Canyon University.
Each year for the past 10 years, the hospital volunteers have given out $4,000 in scholarships to deserving Delta County senior high school students advancing their education in some type of health-related major.
Delta Volunteer Fire Department (DVFD) will be holding its annual fireworks show at Confluence Park on Wednesday, July 4, having received approval from Delta City Council at the council's June 5 meeting.
