AVMC Auxiliary Scholarship Recipients

The Antelope Valley Medical Center (AVMC) Auxiliary presented $1,000 scholarships to eight local high school seniors. Chosen from a pool of exceptional applicants, each recipient has a minimum 3.5 grade point average and has been accepted to study a health career curriculum at an accredited college, university or technical school.

The following students were the recipients of this year’s awards:

  • Brenna Henderson
  • Rita Jarbanda
  • Islynne Jones
  • Alexandria Kalliomaa
  • Itzel Silva Prado
  • Shelby Tran
  • Emily Guadalupe Espinosa Nunez
  • Jacqueline Chavarria
  • Nailea Espinal Baires
  • Jamaica Fronda

The AVMC Auxiliary raises funds for the hospital through the hospital gift shops, New to You Thrift Shop, auxiliary bake sale and other seasonal fundraising events. In addition to its annual health career scholarships program, some of the auxiliary’s past pledges benefited the Women and Infants Pavilion, OB clinics, neonatal intensive care unit, emergency department expansion, and state-of-the-art equipment for the critical care unit.
