Earlier this year, Advanced Correctional Healthcare, Inc. (ACH), announced the launch of the Karen Stocke Scholarship Program.  This program expands our current Professional Development Program.

The Karen Stocke Scholarship Program is dedicated in memory of our longtime friend and ACH business family member of over thirty-five years.  Through this program each year, ACH’s Scholarship Committee may award approximately five (5) individuals an “LPN to RN” scholarship for up to $5,000.  The Karen Stocke Scholarship Program is for full-time licensed practical nurses (LPNs) who are employed by ACH while actively pursuing their registered nurse (RN) degree.  Karen Stocke was dedicated to the continued education of others and we are so pleased to be able to continue her legacy through this scholarship program.

Congratulations, winners!  We appreciate your commitment to ACH, your patients, and furthering your education.  Your ACH business family is proud of you as you take this next step in your professional development.

Scholarships are limited to one per eligible ACH employee per year.  Eligible applicants who are not awarded a scholarship are encouraged to submit a new application each year.  We look forward to seeing next year’s submissions.
