Each year the LRH Auxiliary supports the efforts of health care providers or those entering or returning to school to further their health care careers by providing scholarships.

Area high school students who received scholarships this year include Darcy Horne - LHS, Allie Millen - LHS, Cameron Bosse - WMRHS, Kylee Bailey - WMRHS, Adrianna Robinson - WMRHS (recipient of Auxiliary award and Marion Edmunds Award).
"The LRH Auxiliary is comprised of more than 100 women and men who volunteer to raise funds that support Littleton Regional Healthcare, states Gail Clark, President of the LRH Auxiliary. In addition to scholarships the Auxiliary provides clothing for patients treated in the emergency room, support of the LRH Care-A-Van and North Country Women's Health Conference.
