As many members of the trustaff family may remember, our dear friend and employee Daniel Dorton passed away just before Christmas two years ago.
Dan was one of our longest-tenured trustaff’ers and was an integral part of the office. Many of us have fond memories if him at the helm, making calls and “busting our chops.”
Dan was a unique spirit and he had a special passion for helping nurses. In his honor after his passing, trustaff’s founding partners announced the formation of the Daniel Dorton Memorial Scholarship, which both continues his legacy of giving and supports our trustaff community.
The Daniel Dorton Memorial Scholarship has been established to assist trustaff employees and their children who plan to continue their education in nursing or other health-related fields.
Application for the scholarship was open to any trustaff employee whose children were attending school in the field of nursing, and was designed to encourage and recognize the special commitment of selecting nursing as future career. Scholarship applications were managed by an independent third party.
We are excited to announce that this year two recipients have be selected to receive the very first Daniel Dorton Memorial Scholarship contributions! Both Ani and Sydney are children of trustaff employees who are planning a future in the medical field.
Sydney will be going into her first year studying Kinesiology/Physiology. She is a scholar athlete swimmer, a member of the National Honors Society, and honor roll all four years of high school.
Ani will be going into her second year of an undergrad nursing program with a 3.4 GPA. She was excited to share how she can’t wait to get back to school and put the scholarship to good use!
“Super excited to announce that I have been offered the Daniel Dorton Memorial Scholarship through trustaff where my mom works! I’m so grateful and humbled to have been selected for this huge award and cannot wait to put it to good use this fall! 💛🖤
Huge thank you to my mom for telling me about this scholarship opportunity and reminding me all the time to fill it out, and another huge thank you to trustaff for offering this scholarship and choosing me as the recipient! Can’t wait for this fall! 💛🖤”
Congratulations to these wonderful young ladies, we can’t wait to see what the future holds for you and we wish you all the best on the next phase of your journey!
