Canby woman receives seed scholarship
The Oregon Seed Association's (OSA) scholarship committee recently named Lisa Loscutoff of Canby as a recipient of a Memorial Scholarship Award.
The awards are presented at the annual OSA Summer Convention in June, which was held virtually this year due to public health concerns and restrictions amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Loscutoff is currently enrolled at Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing pursuing a Master of Science in nursing. She is also participating in research honors activities within the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, which pairs her with a primary researcher and allows her to present her findings at the end of her tenure as a student.
Prior to enrolling at Johns Hopkins University, Loscutoff worked at the American Red Cross where she was part of a team that collected platelets primarily used for patients undergoing cancer treatment. The impact of her work there led her to her current path and a desire to help save lives.
The OSA Memorial Scholarships are awarded to students who are related to a current OSA member in good standing, and enrolled or planning to attend a college, university, or trade school the following academic year.
Students must be pursuing a program leading to at least a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science or trade school certificate. An agricultural pursuit is not a requirement.
