Seidle Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Cynthia L. Coller Memorial Scholarship

Beginning in 1989, the Seidle Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, through its life memberships, presented a cash award to the senior student who demonstrated outstanding performance in school, as well as an interest in pursuing a career in healthcare. In 1993, this scholarship was renamed the Cynthia L. Coller Memorial Scholarship in honor of a very special person. Cindy Coller had an interest in the future of education, and was an ambitious volunteer of the Seidle Hospital Auxiliary. With this memorial scholarship, it is our hope that Cindy’s spirit and enthusiasm will live on through this student who has chosen to improve the quality of life for others by pursuing a career in the healthcare field. 

This scholarship is a fund of the Mechanicsburg Area Community Foundation, a regional foundation of TFEC.
