Fel­low­ship funds are used for de­gree com­ple­tion, cer­tifi­cate pro­grams and ex­ec­u­tive or lead­er­ship devel­op­ment pro­grams.

“I am ex­tremely proud of Amy White, Amy Doles, Jes­sica Lyles, and all of those who sub­mit­ted an ap­pli­ca­tion, for their drive and de­ter­mi­na­tion to­ward con­tin­u­ous learn­ing and com­mit­ment to our or­ga­ni­za­tion,” said Dev­ereux Pres­i­dent and CEO Carl E.

To date, the award pro­gram has pro­vided more than 50 em­ploy­ees with fund­ing to earn ad­vanced de­grees that pos­i­tively im­pact our or­ga­ni­za­tion and the in­di­vid­u­als we serve ev­ery day.”
