GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Although some students are out enjoying the summer, many are busy preparing for the next chapter. 

On Wednesday, the Memorial Hospital Foundation announced its 2017 Burdonne Young Scholarships winners.

Recipients must be a dependent of a Memorial employee, enrolled as a full-time undergraduate at a college or university in the Fall of 2017, or are currently enrolled as a full-time undergraduate or graduate student in order to qualify. 

The name of the scholarship comes from a former nurse that served with Memorial for more than 50 years. Memorial employees donate funds to the scholarship fund through the Foundation Employee Campaign. 

Six lucky candidates are chosen annually. The recipients of the 2017 awards are: Aaron Mallete, Christiana Ogletree, Virginia King, Madeline Appel, Allyson Perkins, and Amanda Chambliss.
