Junior Volunteer Scholarship

Meet the Most Recent Recipients of South Nassau’s Dorothy M. Sharer Junior Volunteer Health Care Scholarships

Each year, South Nassau Communities Hospital recognizes local high school graduating seniors with the Dorothy M. Sharer Health Care Scholarship, given to outstanding junior volunteers at the hospital who plan to pursue a career in health care. The scholarships range between $250 and $1,000.

The late Dorothy M. Sharer was a devoted and beloved volunteer at South Nassau for more than 30 years, who dedicated her life to serving others through volunteerism. Recipients of the scholarship emulate Ms. Sharer’s traits while demonstrating a desire to pursue degrees in higher education that would prepare them for careers in health care.

“Each recipient embodies Dorothy’s spirit of selflessness and the joy she received from working with and helping others,” said Anne Marie Fernandez, South Nassau’s Director of Volunteer Services. “The scholarship recipients, as well as their fellow junior volunteers, are commended for their good works in support of the hospital and its patients.”

Volunteering at South Nassau can be both satisfying and enriching. No experience is necessary: Anyone with a little spare time, an easy smile and a kind heart qualifies. Junior high and high school-aged young adults can volunteer after school, on weekends or during spring and summer breaks. It's not only an excellent opportunity to help others, but also a great way to get a firsthand look at the health care field for those considering the field as a career.
