Breast Cancer Support Services of Berks County has announced that the 2023 recipient of the Director’s Scholarship is Delaney Devlin. The BCSS Director’s Scholarship is awarded annually to an individual that will major in the healthcare field.
The BCSS Director’s Scholarship began in 2022 when the members of the Board of Directors determined that they wanted a portion of the annual Board campaign to support a Berks County student that would be attending a technical school, nursing school, or college/university or graduate studies in the healthcare field.
The student is asked to submit an essay answering one of the following questions; tell us about someone who has made an impact in your life and how that will influence your career path in healthcare, or if you could live your life fighting for one cause to serve your community, what would it be and why.
Devlin graduated from Fleetwood Area High School this year and will attend East Stroudsburg University this fall, majoring in nursing.
Her personal experiences have influenced and motivated her to want a career in nursing. “I want to help people from a medical standpoint; I feel like nurses get to know the patient and connect with them firsthand. This is why my future goal is to become a nurse” said Devlin.
The BCSS Board of Directors review committee selected Delaney Devlin for the second annual Director’s Scholarship for $500. “Congratulations Delaney. We wish you success in your future endeavors,” shared Breast Cancer Support Services of Berks County.
