(Belleville, IL) - HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital Auxiliary Volunteers Scholarship Committee recently awarded three $1000 scholarships to area students through the annual HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Auxiliary Volunteer Scholarship program.

The Auxiliary Volunteer Scholarship is offered to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital colleagues and volunteers, as well as their spouses, children and grandchildren. The scholarship winners were chosen from a blind process based on volunteer hours, resume and letters of recommendation. Applicants provided a short submission about their career path and goals.

  • Madeline Remelius of Swansea, Ill. is currently attending the St. Louis College of Pharmacy and studying for her Doctorate degree.  Remelius will be receiving this scholarship for the second consecutive year, having received the Auxiliary Scholarship Award in August of 2017.
