Calvary Hospital awards 2017 Eddie Higgins Scholarship to Tiana Webber

BRONX, NY, August 2017 -- Calvary Hospital recently awarded the 2017 Eddie Higgins Scholarship to an outstanding student, Tiana Webber. Ms. Webber’s mother, Charlene Malone, is a 34-year Calvary veteran who currently works in the Hospital’s Nursing Department as a Cancer Care Technician (CCT). To win the scholarship, Tiana had to demonstrate academic excellence, financial need, and the determination and spirit of Eddie Higgins.

Tiana, 17, is a recent graduate of Preston High School in Bronx, NY. She was involved in The Italian Club, Italian Honor Society, Compassion Connection, National Honor Society, National English Honor Society, and Preston Scholars Program. This fall, she matriculates at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, for an undergraduate degree in Biology.

Her ultimate goal is to become a physician specializing in Pediatrics. Tiana and her family reside in Elmsford, New York.

The Eddie Higgins Scholarship is named after a cherished member of the Calvary family who came to the hospital as a young boy. Eddie was hospitalized intermittently for 15 years at Calvary until his death in 1982 at the age of 29. Eddie is remembered for his love of God and his remarkable courage despite his illness. Calvary has given this annual scholarship since 1985.
