Scholarship awarded in memory of Eileen Austin Neal, RN

The 9th annual Eileen Austin Neal, RN, Nursing Scholarship of $1,000 was awarded to Olivia Clement of Perkinsville to attend the University of Vermont.

The 9th annual Eileen Austin Neal, RN, Nursing Scholarship of $1,000 was awarded to Olivia Clement of Perkinsville to attend the University of Vermont. Clement, who attended Woodstock High School, was inspired to be a nurse as a result of her participation in the Medquest program of the Southern Vermont Area Health Education Center.

Eileen Austin Neal was a registered nurse at Springfield Hospital for 64 years, retiring in 2005. She was the first recipient of the Hospital’s George F. Leland Community Health Award in 2003. In 2004, the Hospital established the Eileen Austin Neal Spirit of Nursing Award, given to a staff nurse, in recognition of her many years of dedicated service.

Upon her death in February 2006, at the request of Eileen’s family, Springfield Hospital established the nursing scholarship fund in her name with the gifts received in her memory.

“Springfield Hospital is a better place for Eileen having worked here,” says Larry Kraft, Director of Development. “This scholarship continues her positive influence on both nursing and the community.”
