The Mercy Hospital Clermont Guild recently awarded three local high school seniors $1,000 scholarships for their educational expenses as they pursue careers in health care fields.
Ashleigh Henson of Batavia High School, Lynette Fenchel, of Glen Este High School, and Elizabeth Ballman of Amelia High School were each awarded scholarships.
Henson was awarded the Sister Mary George Scholarship. She is the daughter of Gary and Sandra Henson and her mother has been a registered nurse at Mercy Clermont for 20 years. Henson will study nursing at the University of Cincinnati Clermont this fall.
