The LCS Foundation has awarded the 2022 Ed & Sue Kenny Scholarships to two students pursuing careers in senior lifestyle services. The honorees include McKenna Campbell, a Health Services Administration major (and Spanish for Health Professions minor) at University of Wisconsin Eau Claire and Shayana VanEyll, who is majoring in Healthcare Administration also at University of Wisconsin Eau Claire.
The Ed & Sue Kenny Scholarship was founded in 2019 to promote the education and professional development of undergraduate and graduate students pursuing a degree at any college or university in the field of senior lifestyle services. The scholarship program is open each year to qualifying students across the country. The next application process will begin in July 2023.
"This year's scholarships recognize outstanding students who exemplify the qualities we want and need for the next generation of leaders in our profession," said Ed Kenny, LCS Foundation past president and scholarship founder. "We are proud to fulfill our mission through scholarships that support those who have chosen to pursue a career in senior living and care."
