"I am excited and honored to be a recipient of this year's 2021 LeadingAge Ohio Foundation General Scholarship. Working at Brethren Retirement Community has been a wonderful experience and the knowledge and wisdom from the elders I care for will always hold a special place in my heart. Working with the geriatric population will remain an interest of mine that I had never considered before my work at BRC."

---  Kendall Hill, Resident Assistant -- Brethren Retirement Community, Greenville, Ohio

“It’s so wonderful being a part of an organization that cares so much about its employees!  As a student who has used loans to pay for my college education, this scholarship means so much to me.  I am forever grateful!”
