2016 Annette Cote Family Memorial Scholarship Award
The Reuben and Annette Cote Family Memorial Scholarship was established by their family many years ago to support ongoing nursing education at Cary Medical Center. The family was so impressed by the care that Annette received during her hospitalization at Cary in the mid-1980’s, that they established a scholarship in her memory that is awarded annually to a Cary Medical Center employee furthering his/her education in the nursing field. The scholarship funds are administered by the the Jefferson Cary Foundation, (JCF).
Receiving the 2016 Scholarship Award of $750 is Kim Wilcox, RT(R)(MR)(M), CN-BI, of Presque Isle. Kim was a Radiologic Technologist and Patient Navigator at Cary prior to returning to college to further her education in the nursing field. Kim is currently enrolled in the Nursing Program at Northern Maine Community College. Her plans are then to continue with the Family Nurse Practitioner Program at Husson University, specializing in geriatrics and pharmacology.
