UPDATE – The Kathleen R. Lencioni Career Development Scholarship!
January 5, 2018
Our scholarship commemorates the life and career of Kathi Lencioni, a beloved friend and colleague to the ACHE community. Kathi was past CEO of Sharp Mesa Vista in San Diego, CA as well as past ACHE Regent for Region 5. Kathi left her mark on many healthcare professionals as a mentor and avid advocate of career development. The San Diego Organization of Healthcare Leaders (SOHL) is proud to honor her legacy with one (1) $1000.00 scholarship annually to a SOHL Member seeking advancement in their career.
With the generosity of Tony Lencioni, son of Kathy Lencioni, we have a match for the initial SOHL scholarship of $500, increasing the total award to $1000! Thank you Tony and the Lencioni Family for your interest in creating an even larger opportunity to develop one SOHL member’s career this year!
