DeTar Volunteer Services Donates $5,000 for nursing scholarships

DeTar Volunteer Services generously gave a $5,000 donation to the Victoria College Foundation.  The funds will be used as scholarships for students pursuing nursing.

In making the award, Yvette Peuttus, DeTar's Senior Circle/Volunteer Coordinator noted “Our Auxiliary is proud to donate to Victoria College’s allied health programs to help students further their education and help relieve some of the financial expenses while attending college to earn their certificate or degree.” She added, "DeTar is also very proud of the Auxiliary for the many ways they give back to the community and the many volunteer hours they provide to our patients, visitors and hospitals.”

Victoria College offers associate degrees, certificates and workforce training courses that lead to a number of rewarding health careers, including medical assisting, nurse aide, professional and vocational nursing, phlebotomy, physical therapy assistant and respiratory care. Students can also complete core courses at Victoria College and then transfer to a four-year university to earn a bachelor's degree in a healthcare field.
