2015 Obijiski Scholarship Winner
On December 17th, 2015, at the December Leadership Meeting, Brianna Cozzolino (DSP Floater in Ulster County) was honored as the 2015 recipient of the Obijiski Scholarship in the amount of $500.00 to assist her in continuing her formal education. The Obijiski Scholarship perpetuates the legacy of Regis Obijiski (NHR’s former Executive Director) and his commitment to the development and recognition of direct support as a true profession.
Brianna, who has been employed by NHR since 2014, is someone with a longstanding commitment to her professional development. In less than two years she has been able to complete both Direct Care Certificate programs offered by NHR and to earn her Associates Degree with financial support from NHR. Brianna said that she uses the skills she learned in college on a daily basis and that “NHR was very supportive in getting me enrolled and ensuring that I was successful.” We all wish Brianna well as she continues her studies. Please congratulate her when you see her!
