Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center Auxiliary awarded its 2021 scholarship to Raley Patch of Salida.

The scholarship awards an annual amount of $1,000 for four recurring years, subject to a renewal process each year, a press release stated.

Patch, a 2021 Salida High School graduate, will attend Colorado State University this fall and pursue a major in biochemistry with a pre-pharmacy concentration.

She said she has always had a strong interest in biology and chemistry and plans to combine those interests in a pharmaceutical research career.

HRRMC Auxiliary is a group of volunteers who support the hospital in providing services and medical equipment. They also operate the HRRMC Gift Shop. Anyone interested in becoming a member may call the HRRMC Foundation office at 719-530-2218.
