Glenn Koons CPS Scholarship Opportunity
The Glenn Koons Scholarship Fund was established to help individuals in mental health recovery with costs associated with Certified Peer Specialist training.
Glenn was a Certified Peer Specialist at Wernersville State Hospital and prior to that served as Southeast Region Community Support Program Coordinator for the Mental Health Association of Southeastern Pennsylvania. Glenn brought hope and smiles to everyone around him regardless of where he was.
The scholarship is awarded annually to individuals who exemplify what Glenn stood for. The ability to engage others, the willingness to share life experiences in recovery, provide leadership and guidance, and pass on these skills to others.
If you are interested in applying for this scholarship opportunity please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application.
The completed application along with two letters of reference were due no later than June 11, 2021.
