WILLIAMSPORT - Pennsylvania College of Technology selected Trevor Hiller, a senior in the Paramedic program, to receive the Susquehanna Health Endowed Scholarship for academic year 2011-2012. Hiller has received $10,000 towards his schooling through the scholarship.
Hiller, a resident of Montoursville, has been employed by Susquehanna Health as an EMT since September 2011 and gives back to the community as a volunteer EMT at the Willing Hand Hose Co. #1 located in Montoursville, PA. "As a knowledgeable, compassionate and self-motivated individual, he has consistently demonstrated academic excellence and superb clinical performance," said Chris Heiss, critical care paramedic, Susquehanna Regional EMS.
Susquehanna Health established the endowed scholarship fund in 2010 to benefit Pennsylvania College of Technology students who reside in a nine-county region in northcentral Pennsylvania and to demonstrate its ongoing support for Penn College.
The fund, which generates more than $10,000 annually for scholarship awards, benefits students enrolled in the college's School of Health Sciences and reside in Lycoming, Bradford, Clinton, Montour, Northumberland, Potter, Snyder, Tioga or Union counties.
The scholarship is a successor to a previous scholarship fund that benefited Penn College students from 2004-10. Previously in 1986 The Williamsport Hospital established a trust to fund the then-named "Williamsport Hospital College Scholarship," which benefited Penn College students born at the hospital between 1986 and 1992.
