Bethesda, MD – On Friday, September21st, Meridian Senior Living was pleased to announce national and regional winners for education scholarships totaling $8,000 for its “Every Family Has A Story, Let’s Hear Yours!” video competition. With this scholarship opportunity, Meridian Senior Living was aiming to encourage cross-generational development and grow relationships with family members who are living in their senior living communities.
Meridian Senior Living announces six scholarship awards: $3,000 each for two national winners: Olivia Bell and Caleb & Betsy Nelson; and $500 each for four regional winners: McKenna Gierman, Caroline Herring, Brook VanDerAa, and Serenity Zwaschka. These scholarship awards were based on videos that participants created highlighting their grandparents who are residents of Meridian Senior Living communities.
Meridian Senior Living opened this scholarship opportunity from June 1st to August 31st to students under the age of 25 who have family members living in a Meridian Senior Living managed community. Each student participant entered their own 3 – 10 minute length video showcasing their loved relative and the most meaningful and memorable parts of their life. They also included messages to share with the children of today. Meridian Senior Living was excited to offer this opportunity to students not only to supplement their education, but also to encourage the preservation of memories and facilitate the connection of their residents and their families.
