Boston-area nurse Sibylla Orth Young died in 1986, a fund was established
in her name to help Children's Hospital Boston employees and
their family members pursue college-level education in health-related
fields. This year, 22 employees and 10 eligible family members received
awards, including Ludivenis Lara, a clinical assistant on Fegan
11. Lara will use her award toward an associate's degree in
Nursing at Laboure College. "I've always wanted to be
a nurse," says Lara, who expects to graduate in April 2006.
"I love everything about nursing and everything about pediatrics.
This scholarship will help me finally get to where I want to be."
