THEF Scholarship Award Winners Announced
by Bob Byrd, FACHE

Two Pfeiffer University MHA students were each awarded a $750.00 THEF scholarship in 2008.  The students, Ernestine Quick and Christy Benson (pictured L to R), were introduced at the annual THEF meeting at the Grandover Resort Hotel on November 6.

Ms. Quick is Manager, Supplemental Nursing Department, High Point Regional Health System.  Having earned the BSN degree from UNC Chapel Hill, Ms. Quick has been a staff nurse, charge nurse, unit coordinator, and performance coach.  She was named a North Carolina "Great 100 Nurse" in 2005, and she is active in the North Carolina Nurses Association.  While dedicating her life to health care, Ms. Quick enjoys being a wife and mother and singing in her husband's gospel group.

Ms. Benson is Clinical Information and Analysis Manager for the Quality Excellence Department at Moses Cone Health System.  She holds a BS in Computer Information Systems from Guilford College, a Certificate in Health Care Management from the UNC Chapel Hill Gillings School of Global Public Health, a Master Black Belt in Data Management from North Carolina State University, and a Six Sigma Green Belt.  Ms. Benson has been featured as an industry speaker for such groups as Voluntary Hospitals Association (VHA) Gulf States Region, Thomson-Reuters Healthcare, Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, Healthcare IT News, and the North Carolina Health Information Management Association.

The THEF Scholarship Program provides up to $1,500.00 in tuition assitance to one or more worthy recipients each year.  The Program's purpose is to provide financial support to professionals of member organizations in the Triad who are pursuing further graduate level education for a career in healthcare management.  Scholarships are awarded on the basis of applicants' past academic success and the likelihood for future success.

Congratulations to Ernestine Quick and Christy Benson.
