Scholarship Awarded to Cambridge Rindge and Latin Student

$1,000 scholarship to be put towards college expenses for a student pursuing a health care career
Cambridge, Mass., May 2008 – Professional Ambulance Service, one of the premiere providers of emergency medical services in Massachusetts, together with The Cambridge Rindge and Latin School Scholarship Committee, selected Miss Noor Abu-Ribieh to receive the Professional Ambulance Service Scholarship for the 2007-2008 academic year. Professional Ambulance Service established this scholarship more than ten years ago to help a Cambridge Rindge and Latin School student who intends to pursue a career in health care. The $1,000 award can be used for any college-related expense.
“This scholarship is one of the many ways in which Professional Ambulance Service supports the city of Cambridge,” said Brian Kelley, Operations Supervisor and field paramedic for Professional Ambulance Service and member of The Cambridge Rindge & Latin School’s Healthcare Careers Board of Advisors. Professional Ambulance Service is an important training resource for the school’s Health Assisting Program, with staff like Kelley teaching CPR and First Aid Certification courses at the school as well as providing field trip opportunities for career exploration.
Miss Noor Abu-Ruybieh, the recipient of this year’s Professional Ambulance Service scholarship, is an honors student who is enrolled in both Advanced Placement college preparatory courses as well as Cambridge Rindge and Latin School’s rigorous Health Assisting Program, which combines classroom studies with a hands-on field placement internship in a community-based health care facility. Abu-Ruybieh also works as a nurse’s aide at Mt. Auburn Hospital, and wants to become a physician.
For the 2007-2008 academic year, Cambridge Rindge and Latin received 39 scholarship applications from eligible students. The scholarship winner was chosen by The Cambridge Rindge and Latin School Scholarship Committee. Selection criteria include academic performance, letters of recommendation, and answers to short essay questions.
Miss Abu-Ruybieh will be one of many scholarship winners honored at The Cambridge Rindge and Latin School Scholarship Night on Thursday, May 22, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. Ceremonies will be held in the school auditorium at 459 Broadway in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
