The Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation is pleased to announce that Ruby Kiker of Corvallis has been awarded the Jeanne Hazleton Scholarship for Midwifery and Doula Education for the 2021-22 academic year. Kiker will pursue her education at the Midwives College of Utah.
“Ruby’s application showed work ethic, academic achievement and purpose,” said Patrick Hazleton, who established the scholarship in 2008, in memory of his late wife Jeanne Hazleton. “The Selection Committee is delighted to help advance her career in midwifery."
The Jeanne Hazleton Scholarship is funded by numerous contributions made by family and friends. Its purpose is to honor Jeanne’s lifetime service and contribution to the community as a practicing doula and midwife and to encourage women to enter or continue their education in the birthing field.
The scholarship program is designed to help female residents of Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties begin or continue their education for doula and/or midwife training, certification or licensing.
