For the second year, Suffield by the River has granted the Althea Scheller Scholarship to one of the senior living community’s staff. This year the recipient is Antonia Reynolds, who came to the center in 2004 as an aide and has since become a licensed practical nurse. Toni plans to continue her part-time studies to become a registered nurse.
The scholarship was established by Althea Scheller last year to express her appreciation for her care at Suffield by the River and give a deserving staff member a hand up. This year, following Althea’s recent death, the award ceremony was attended by her nephew, John Whitney, and his wife Nancy, who said they intend to see that the scholarship continues.
