Fort Walton Beach Medical Center’s Auxiliary just helped five local high students head off to college.


The Fort Walton Beach Medical Center (FWBMC) Auxiliary believes the more knowledge our young people can gain, the better adults they will become. That’s why the Fort Walton Beach Medical Center is committed to education, and one way they show it is through the work their Auxiliary does each and every day. Investing in our young people is investing in the future of our community, as well as our country.


Each year, the FWBMC Auxiliary awards $12,000 in scholarships to high school students from Fort Walton Beach High School and Choctawhatchee High School so they may further their education. The selection process is rigorous, and recipients must meet specific criteria before even being considered.


Applications are completed and submitted with a number of documents and verifications that make them eligible for the scholarship. Among the criteria in which the students are judged are academics, extracurricular activities, and volunteerism.


In June, five students from Fort Walton Beach High School were awarded scholarships — Ethan Lipnicky ($3,000), Sabrina Locht ($3,000), Alyssa Bettinger ($2,000), John Parker ($2,000), and Tristin Woodruff, who was also a FWBMC “Volunteen” ($2,000).
