Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation's Barbara Schmidt Millar Celebration of Life Triathlon Scholarship committee has selected four female graduates from Nevada Union High School to receive scholarships, aimed at helping local students further their careers in the field of healthcare, according to a release.

The recipients are Kaleigh Bedell, who will be studying biology at UC Davis; Claire Berman, who will be studying nutrition at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo; Ellerie Smith, who will be studying nursing at CSU Chico; and Alexandra Whittle, who will be studying biology at UC Davis.

The Triathlon committee has supported 61 young ladies with scholarships since 1999. This has resulted in $156,000 since the program started.
