Submitted photo Members of the Board of The John and Helen Villaume Foundation presented Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine with a scholarship for a medical school student whose home residence is Wayne County. The purpose of the scholarship is to support a medical student who demonstrates an interest in pursuing a career as a physician in Wayne County upon graduation. It is the Board’s hope that by providing this financial incentive, the area can increase the number of physicians practicing locally. The $40,000 award is based upon the student’s academic achievements, need and the recommendation of the Geisinger Commonwealth’s Scholarship Committee recommendation. Those eligible will be a third and/or fourth year student.
