The Neil D. Okeson Memorial Scholarship was created to pay tribute to an educator who dedicated over 30 years of his life to instilling the right to believe in yourself and your future. The guiding principles that Mr. Okeson taught in both the classroom and life were those of:
- Integrity – the ability to do what is right
- Hard-work – the ability to give the task at hand your best
- Tenacity – the ability to be persistent and persevere no matter how the odds stack up against you
- Commitment – to never give up on your dreams
In honor of Mr. Okeson, this Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to an Elite employee who has best exemplified the traits of integrity, hard work, tenacity, and commitment in the workplace as they continue to pursue their dream of becoming a healthcare provider.
