Morning Pointe of Columbia and the Morning Pointe Foundation are proud to announce that Caitlin Jadofsky has been selected as the Columbia State 2018 Morning Pointe Foundation scholar. The faculty of Columbia State Community College nominated Jadofsky for this prestigious scholarship due to her high grades, skill, and dedication as she pursues a career in nursing. Jadofsky lives in Spring Hill, Tennessee with her husband and two, young children. “The Morning Pointe scholarship will help me fulfill my dream of being a nurse and will help me show my children that it is never too late,” Jadofsky said upon receiving the scholarship.

“Columbia State and six Morning Pointe locations both serve the greater Nashville area, and we thank Morning Pointe for being a community partner,” said Bethany Lay, the Vice President of Advancement at Columbia State Community College.

Morning Pointe anticipates the growing need for qualified caregivers as a large segment of our population is aging. Through scholarship support, Morning Pointe partners with colleges and universities in our efforts to graduate excellent healthcare professionals. Jadofsky joins the ranks of eight other nursing students in Tennessee and Kentucky who received the Morning Pointe Foundation scholarship in 2018.

“There is nothing that can replace the medical knowledge, attention to detail, and compassionate manner of a skilled caregiver,” said Greg A. Vital, the President and C.E.O. of Morning Pointe Senior Living. “As a large portion of our population continues to age, skilled caregivers, like our Morning Pointe Foundation scholars, are an incredibly precious resource.”

Two new Morning Pointe Foundation scholarships were announced in 2018: a scholarship for occupational therapy students at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, Kentucky and a scholarship for nursing students at Shelton State Community College in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The first scholars from these schools will be announced next year. The Morning Pointe Foundation also plans to support new scholarships in both Knoxville and Tullahoma, Tennessee in 2019.
