Scholarship Memorializing EMS Trailblazer Fully Endowed
Nursing & Health Sciences
The family of William E. Henry gathered on campus Thursday to deliver a check that brings the scholarship fund established in his name to fully endowed status. Henry was a pioneer in Lycoming County’s emergency medical services. He was in the first graduating class from the Williamsport Hospital School of Paramedic Training – the Penn College emergency medical services program’s predecessor – and served many vital roles as a leader, instructor and paramedic. The William E. Henry Memorial Scholarship is open to students in the college’s emergency medical services associate-degree major or paramedic technician certificate major who are residents of Bradford, Clinton, Lycoming, Potter, Sullivan Tioga and Union counties and who have a minimum GPA of 2.5. Molly J. Durland, an emergency medical services student from Dushore, is the 2016-17 recipient and joined the family for a photo. The family gathered later Thursday evening to celebrate the scholarship becoming fully endowed and to remember the life and contributions of Henry.
