PROSSER — Prosser Memorial Health Foundation has awarded $6,000 in scholarships to local seniors who hope to pursue careers in the medical field.

Each senior selected for the funds received a $2,000 check.

Scholarships were awarded to Grandview High School’s Christian Alejandra Parra, who is planning to attend Washington State University to study nursing; Nayeli Cabrera, a Prosser High School senior, who is planning to attend the University of Washington to study pre-med and Kiona-Benton School’s Dane Oliver, who is planning to attend Columbia Basin College to pursue a degree in nursing.

The three were selected for the scholarships from among 13 applicants. The funds for the scholarship were raised through sales at the hospital’s gift shop.
