The WCA Foundation was pleased to present the Murray S. Marsh Scholarship Award to Radiology graduate, Nora Edwards at the 2024 UPMC Chautauqua School of Radiology commencement on June 14 at UPMC Chautauqua.  The scholarship was created through an endowment fund established by the Marsh family to be presented to an outstanding graduate of the School of Radiology.

The late Murray S. Marsh was the Chief Executive Officer of the former WCA Hospital. The annual scholarship award recognizes graduating students who have achieved excellence in their studies and who have demonstrated superior patient care skills. Mr. Marsh understood to deliver quality patient care, the clinician’s knowledge and skill is critical … but when combined with kindness and compassion, the patient experience multiples 10-fold.

Kristin Melville, WCA Foundation Executive Director said, “The most critical challenges facing healthcare today is the shortage of health care professionals. The WCA Foundation is proud to partner with UPMC Chautauqua and the School of Radiology to assist students pursuing careers in medical specialties. A scholarship award of $500 helps graduates with licensure fees and minor expenses incurred throughout their course work. Nora, Congratulations! Please accept our deepest appreciation to you as you begin your journey as a skilled professional. “
