Tom and Joan Searcy are dedicated volunteers whose long-time support for Seton Hays recently led to a generous gift to create The Searcy Family Health Professions Scholarship Endowment.
During their weekly volunteer shifts in the Seton Hays Emergency Department, Tom and Joan see firsthand the excellent care provided by our clinical staff.
“It takes a good education to do what they do every day,” says Tom. “But nowadays it is so expensive to go to school. We just want to help some of them pursue the education they need to enter, or advance in, the health care field. We have a passion to support this.”
The first Searcy Family Health Professions Scholarship of $3,000 was awarded to Denise Brelsford, Med/Surg RN III, Seton Medical Center Hays.
