The family of the late Scott E. Monk, DO, of Cherry Hill, New Jersey, presented the Scott E. Monk, DO, Memorial Scholarship Awards to Elizabeth Schnepp, BSN, RN, of Tuckerton; Jeff Canfield, of Egg Harbor Township; and Mikaela Sheridan, of Linwood,at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center’s 19th Annual Trauma Symposium at Bally’s Atlantic City Hotel & Casino May 2.

The Monk Family established the Scott E. Monk Fund, an annual scholarship program, to honor the life and teachings of the former medical director of the Trauma Center at ARMC, and funded the three $5,000 awards that were presented. The scholarship is open to AtlantiCare employees and their dependents. In addition to contributions from the Monk family, the Monk Scholarship is also generously supported by the Tim Kern Scholarship Fund.

A new fundraiser, the annual Funky Monk Fish & Music Fest Fundraiser held in June 2016, also generated enough donations to allow three $5,000 scholarships to be awarded, versus the $5,000 and two $1,500 scholarships that have been awarded in previous years.

“Scott’s spirit, drive, and passion live on through these scholarships,” said his wife, Nancy Monk. “Our scholarship recipients are extremely motivated, hardworking, and focused on their respective goals. They demonstrate exceptional initiative and compassion while providing the highest standard of patient care.”

Elizabeth Schnepp, BSN, RN, of Tuckerton, joined AtlantiCare in 2008 as a nurse extern, and has held various positions with AtlantiCare while continuing her nursing education. She currently works in the Trauma Intensive Care Unit, ARMC Atlantic City Campus and is pursuing an adult/gerontology acute care nurse practitioner degree at the University of Pennsylvania.

Jeff Canfield, of Egg Harbor Township, is an emergency room technician at ARMC City Campus. He is pursuing his registered nursing degree at Cumberland County Community College.

Mikaela Sheridan, of Linwood, is a senior at Mainland Regional High School. She will pursue her Bachelors of Science in Nursing degree at Pennsylvania State University in the fall. Her mom is a 25-year employee at ARMC Mainland Campus.

More than 600 attended the symposium. Experts including those from ARMC, its clinical partners and hospitals/healthcare organizations from across the country, shared best practices for care of the trauma patient in 30 different sessions.
