Women for Healthy Rural Living announces the selection of Estrella Paredes as this year’s Elaine Hill Memorial Nursing Scholarship recipient. Estrella is a 2023 graduate of Narraguagus High School.

In her junior year, Estrella signed up for the school’s CNA program and at the same time took the EMT course offered at Eastern Maine Community College. She reports that working in these fields helped her realize that she wanted to continue in the healthcare field.

Estrella is attending Husson University in Bangor.

The award includes $2500 a year for four years. The scholarship honors the memory of long-time Milbridge nurse Elaine Hill, who died in 2009 after a battle with cancer. Since then, Women for Healthy Rural Living has raised over $75,000 in nursing scholarships.
