Toronchuk Scholarship Application Form

This scholarship was created by Donna's husband David Toronchuk, son Scott, daughter Jaclyn (Froment) and son-in-law Patrick. Donna was an outgoing and passionate person who always cared for the well being of others. Donna was very family orientated and the absolute cornerstone of her family. Donna taught her family to live life to the fullest, to be strong and to laugh along the way. Her untimely death has been very difficult for her family to accept.
Donna had a non fatal bone condition which resulted in numerous hospital visits. The many long waits in emergency discouraged Donna from making trips to the hospital at times when she should have. The Toronchuk Family knows that Donna would be appreciative of any improvements that could be made in reducing the emergency room wait times. As a result her family established this scholarship to encourage development and improvement in this area.

The purpose of this scholarship is to allow Emergency Department health care workers to upgrade their skills and remain current in their professions, so that they can continue to offer the highest level of health care at the Sturgeon Community Hospital.
