Winslow Campus Of Care Donates $10,000 To Winslow Rotary Club<br>Funds Dispersed To Five Organizations Throughout The Community

Winslow Rotary President 2000-2001 Lawrence Kenna, 2001-2002 President Steve Montano stand by while NPC President Dr. Gary Passer receives a check from Dawn Wetherbee and Dan Wetherbee from Winslow Campus of Care.

Northland Pioneer College received a $2,500 nursing scholarship from the Winslow Campus of Care. The scholarship will be awarded to a Native American nursing student who would remain in the Winslow area for three years after completing the program.

Wetherbee said that since a majority of the residents at WCC are Native American, she wanted the money to benefit a Native American nursing student.

“We want to see the community grow and flourish, we feel the community has served us well for 24 years and it was time,” Wetherbee said.

Wetherbee added that the recipient can go to work for any medical practice in winslow, not just WCC. “The can work for a doctor, at the Dialysis Center or at the hospital,” she said.

This scholarship is the largest single donor scholarship NPC’s Winslow branch has received.

Other contributions made by Wetherbee went to help the Friends of the Library and Alice’s Place. The Winslow High School Band will also receive a new instrument to their collection thanks to a $1,500 donation. The Arizona Youth Soccer Organization will also receive $1,000 for new uniforms and other equipment.

Instead of just donating the $10,000 to the organizations, Winslow Campus of Care donated the funds to the Winslow Rotary. The Rotary then dispersed the funds according to WCC’s wishes and encouraged each organization to match the money given, doubling the total.

Dr. Gary Passer, President of NPC, was on hand at the Rotary’s Wednesday, Aug 8, meeting to accept a $2,500 check from Campus of Care. Other donation recipients will attend later meeting to receive their checks.
