An old saying states that there is a silver lining around every cloud. After the tragic death of Air Evac paramedic Wade Weston, a scholarship fund was created by family and friends in his honor at the Rush Memorial Hospital Foundation. Wade was a dedicated and much loved member of his community and Air Evac team. He lived his life helping others.
Recently, the Rush Memorial Hospital Foundation awarded the first Wade Weston Scholarship to Lindsey Cornett. Lindsey presently works as a nurse in the RMH Sheehan Cancer Center. She is currently working on her master’s degree in nursing, specializing in the field of Family Nurse Practitioner. This $500 scholarship is available to hospital employees that are pursuing a nursing or emergency medical services education.
A reception was held to award Lindsey Cornett the scholarship and meet the family of Wade Weston. Family members shared stories of his life and work and Lindsey shared her educational goals and dreams for the future.
