Judy Yeamans was a wonderful nurse and role model for caregivers in York Care Centre; she was Unit Coordinator in the Allen Wing and endeared residents, families, and staff to her due to her skill, knowledge, and pleasing personality. On her death, her family provided the initial resources to commence the Judy Yeamans Scholarship Fund. This fund gives out approximately $1000 each year to a student (or it may be divided amongst multiple worthy students) who is registered in the nursing program either at UNB or NBCC; preference is normally given to staff who are attempting to upgrade their professional qualifications or to family members of staff members. Application forms are posted on the website.
To apply for the 2015 scholarship, please complete the Judy Yeamans Memorial Scholarship Application.
If you are interested in helping to raise funds for the scholarship, please contact the Foundation office at 453-3191. If you would like to make a donation, you may do so at the main office or online at www.canadahelps.org
