Kettering Education Foundation - Diane Patterson Memorial Scholarship

Diane enjoyed a life filled with love, learning, and service. Her passion for helping others was reflected throughout her career as a nurse, rehabilitation counselor, and educator. Diane was forever a champion of those seeking sobriety. After a lengthy nursing career punctuated by a 25-year management tenure in addiction services for Miami Valley Hospital, Diane decided to change from healthcare management to inspiring and teaching the next generation of Healthcare Workers. At age 50, Diane left her position in hospital management to obtain a 2nd Master’s Degree, beginning a new adventure teaching Allied Health at Kettering Fairmont High School. Her students fondly remember her as “Ms. P” and “Momma P.” She loved all the same and will be remembered for her favorite phrase, “I Love You,” which she said to anyone she met. Applicant’s must:

  • Be a graduating senior from Fairmont High School in the Allied Health Program
  • Be accepted to a two-year, four-year, technical school or college or university
  • Plan to major in a healthcare related field
  • Have successful experience being employed or volunteering/community services
