Fairwinds – Ivey Ranch Residents Give Back through Scholarship Program

Fairwinds - Ivey Ranch Scholarship

Alissa Sauer

Fairwinds – Ivey Ranch is committed to living out the Three-Thirds Lifestyle, where family, service, and work are prioritized in a balanced and life-enhancing way. As a Leisure Care community, Fairwinds – Ivey Ranch independent living and assisted living encourages residents and staff to make meaningful contributions to the larger Oceanside community. Take a closer look at how two Fairwinds – Ivey Ranch residents are encouraging the next generation of healthcare leaders. 

Residents Stan and Nancy Kukawka have been dedicated volunteers at Tri-City Medical Center for 16 years. Even after moving to Fairwinds six years ago, they continued their volunteer work at the hospital and introduced the community to the Auxiliary Scholarship program. This year, the Fairwinds community was proud to donate to the program, which awarded nursing student Karen Choung with a scholarship.

Karen expressed her gratitude for the scholarship, saying, “I am so honored to be selected as a recipient of the Tri-City Hospital Auxiliary Scholarship. Thank you so much for your generosity and support. You have lightened my financial burden, which allows me to focus on learning. Your generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to the community. I hope I can one day help students achieve their goals like you have helped me.”

The Tri-City Hospital Auxiliary Scholarship program has been in operation for 32 years, providing financial assistance to nursing students in the community. The program is made possible by dedicated volunteers like the Kukawkas, who work tirelessly to raise funds and support the scholarship recipients.

Fairwinds is proud to support the Tri-City Hospital Auxiliary Scholarship program and encourages others to get involved in supporting the education of future healthcare professionals.
