Generous gift enhances support for Medical Mutual Nursing and Health Careers Endowed Scholarship Fund
Medical Mutual of Ohio has provided a $1 million gift to increase the number of scholarships awarded to nursing and health career students at Cuyahoga Community College, expanding the existing Medical Mutual Nursing and Health Careers Endowed Scholarship Fund established in 2012 through the Cuyahoga Community College Foundation.
“It feels great to know we’re helping the next generation of nursing and health care professionals as they learn their craft at Tri-C,” said Rick Chiricosta, chairman, president and CEO of Medical Mutual. “We know this is a winning investment that will benefit our community for decades to come.”
Tri-C President Alex Johnson said the Medical Mutual gift will have an enduring impact. The College ranks among the national leaders in awarding nursing and health career degrees, meeting the need for skilled workers in an industry vital to the region’s economy.
“The generosity and commitment of Medical Mutual to the future development of health care professionals in Northeast Ohio is truly inspiring,” Johnson said. “This support will change the lives of Tri-C students and every person they care for during their careers.”
The donation was announced during the Tri-C Foundation's Presidential Scholarship Luncheon on Nov. 1. We appreciate our long-term partnership with Medical Mutual and the impact of this support upon the lives of Tri-C students and our entire region.
