The Michelle Guse Memorial Scholarship was awarded to two health care students currently employed at the Coronation Hospital and Care Centre. Dana Golby and Paige Cole were awarded $500 each for their pursuit of further studies.

Dana Golby has been employed by Alberta Health Services (AHS) for the past seven years.  In the past year, her role changed to Therapy Assistant in Coronation and Consort.  Golby is currently enrolled in the Physical Therapy Assistant Diploma program through Norquest College, combining work and school.  She plans to complete this program in the summer of 2014.

Paige Cole is the Activities Convenor in Long-Term Care (LTC), working towards completion of her Therapeutic Recreation Diploma online. Cole works full time and carries a full course load as well. She plans to complete her diploma in April 2014.

The Michelle Guse Memorial Scholarship was established in 2010, with the first award in January of 2011.

Michelle Guse grew up in Coronation and was a full time employee of AHS at the time of her passing. The community and her fellow co-workers established this scholarship as a legacy for Michelle.

The Foundation recognizes the efforts of students from Coronation and surrounding area pursuing a career in health care with this scholarship.  The annual scholarship of $500 is awarded each January.
