WEL Upper Moreland residentsdeveloped the ServeWEL scholarship program to provide financial assistance to the student employees of WEL, to support their education and future potential. Now in its thirteenth year, the ServeWEL program has awarded over $90,000 in scholarships to its dedicated, determined and driven student employees.
“The ServeWEL scholarship program is special. In support of this program, our residents take the initiative to raise funds dedicated to assisting the junior team members, as they pursue their high school or college education,” said Maureen Casey, Executive Director of both Wesley Enhanced Living Upper Moreland and Burholme communities. “There’s no better feeling than seeing the grace and kindness this program inspires.”
The scholarship program not only offers support to students, but it also allows for those at the community to foster and continue to grow the bond between local young people and senior residents.
“From year to year, our thoughtful residents develop and cultivate a unique bond with our staff,” said Maureen. “Seeing young students grow throughout their employment really makes a positive impact on all of those here.”
The students will each receive a $1,000 scholarship to put toward their college education. This year’s recipients plan to attend schools such as LaSalle University, New York University, Temple University, Towson University, University of Pittsburgh and spanning all the way to Florida Atlantic University.
