RUSHVILLE — The Rush Memorial Hospital Foundation recently received a Rush /Shelby RoundUp $250.00 grant to initiate a new partnership with the local 4-H programs. The new program called “Building Leaders Together” will train local 4-H club Health & Safety leaders in areas of leadership and lessons that can be used at their local club meetings. The new Health & Safety leaders will be given information from RMH Foundation

Executive director Faith Mock and RMH Wellness Coordinator Jena Wagner covering ten short health and safety lessons. They also will be provided needed equipment and supplies to share these lessons with the local club membership. “I want to thank Rush/Shelby Energy, particularly Jason Clemmons, RoundUp grant coordinator, and to Kristi Amos, local 4-H Youth development leader, for their help in getting this new partnership started. The RMH Foundation Board is excited to bring together the young Health & Safety leaders and share information that can be used for their club lessons. This grant helps us get the materials and pertinent information needed for the new leader training. Some day these young people may choose a career in the field of health and medicine. We hope to spur an excitement and interest in both,” stated Faith Mock, executive director of the Rush Memorial Hospital Foundation.

The new “Building Leaders Together” program will kick-off as soon as 4-H clubs have had their officer elections. Training will take place at Rush Memorial with the new leaders, their parent(s), and local 4-H leaders. The mission of the Rush Memorial Hospital Foundation is to establish a partnership with the community to help educate, support, and fund the ongoing healthcare efforts of Rush Memorial Hospital.
