To honor the legacy of their parents after Rita's passing in 2017, a new scholarship has been established at Steuben County Community Foundation by the family of John and Rita Crimmins. The scholarship will support Angola High School graduates who are involved in Health Occupation Education courses and choose to pursue training for important health-related careers in nursing, nursing assistant, or nursing aid fields. John and Rita were active community members for many years, and Rita—a former nurse—created Angola’s vocational education program for health occupations. The John and Rita Crimmins Health Occupations Scholarship will be offered each year starting in Spring 2019. This scholarship will honor the legacy of two committed Angola residents and allow many students to gain valuable training for a fulfilling career of service in healthcare.
