Since its establishment in 2002, the Jean Raines Family Scholarship Program has awarded dozens of scholarships to deserving students who are pursuing their educational goals. The Riverside Health System Foundation is pleased to acknowledge the following recipients of scholarships for the 2015-2016 academic year:

  • Terry Levon Everett is the son of Tikishia Everett, currently working in the Assessment/Marketing and Staffing Resources department for Riverside Rehabilitation Institute and Riverside Regional Medical Center. Terry graduated in June with an Advanced Studies Diploma from Warwick High School, ranked number 36 in a class of 310 students. He works about 20 hours a week, as well as volunteering his time tutoring other children, reading to children at the public library and assisting the elderly in his neighborhood with yard and garden work. Terry has been accepted to and is enrolled at Virginia Commonwealth University where he will pursue a biology/pre-med major. His educational objective is to pursue a career in neurology and obtain his Ph.D.
  • David Lyle Livermon is the son of Teresa Livermon, currently working in the RHS Human Resources/Talent Recruitment Center. David graduated in June with an Advanced Studies Diploma from Grafton High School. Born deaf in his right ear, David says, "The combination of my disability and a desire to learn new things allows for me to push myself far beyond the expected standards." His supervisor at Cru Military, where he has volunteered for a number of years, says, "David is hard working and diligent. He has used determination and discipline to overcome being totally deaf in his right ear." David is enrolled at George Mason University where he will pursue a civil engineering major.
