The Foundation is pleased to announce the selection of Ricardo Morales, a DPT student at American International College in Springfield, MA as the recipient of the inaugural Haley Cremer Memorial Scholarship.
The scholarship is given to an individual that demonstrates passion and dedication to school, to the profession of physical therapy, to helping others, and improving lives of those around them as Haley did every day. Consideration is given to an individual best demonstrating Haley’s four core values:
- Demonstrating Compassion for others
- Instilling Perseverance in the face of hardship
- Fostering Insight and recovery
- Championing Renewal of spirit.
“Thank you so much for this amazing opportunity! I am very happy and appreciative to learn that I was selected as the recipient of the 2020 Inaugural Haley Cremer Memorial Scholarship. Haley’s traits of compassion and generosity for others resonates with me as I aspire to continue portraying these traits in my life and within my community. ” said Ricardo. “Your generosity has lightened my financial burdens and has allowed me to continue my second year at AIC. I will be learning about Neuromuscular intervention, Cardiopulmonary patient management and begin working towards my Capstone. Without scholarship patrons willing to support physical therapy education, students such as myself would be unable to pursue advanced healthcare degrees. Once again, thank you for helping me become one step closer to becoming a Doctor of Physical Therapy.”
