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

Each year, Mount Sinai South Nassau 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 Mount Sinai South Nassau for more than 33 years and over 30,000 hours, 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.”
