Three employees of Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center who are furthering their education in health care fields are this year’s recipients of Esther L. Werner & Helene Barter Scholarships. Brittany LaVerdi, Andrea Galyn and Mikayla Scott received the stipends at a meeting of the Medical Center Auxiliary board of directors.

LaVerdi, a registered nurse, is working toward a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Western Governors University. A resident of North Tonawanda, she has been a medical center employee for more than four years.

Galyn is enrolled in the medical technology program at Erie Community College. A Niagara Falls resident, she has worked at Memorial as a lab assistant for three years.

Scott, a unit clerk on the behavioral health unit, is enrolled in the RN program at Niagara County Community College. She is a four-year employee and resides in Niagara Falls.

The scholarships have been awarded by the auxiliary annually since 1989. They are given in memory of Werner, Memorial’s first social worker; and her sister, a long-time medical center volunteer.

Auxilian Judy Shahin chaired the selection committee.
