Schea Scholarship Award Winners

Posted on: Jan 18, 2016

The Eberhard and Helen Schea Endowment Fund for Health Care Education was established in 2007 to support continuing health care education programs, which promote the overall well-being of PPh residents and staff.  The fund is named in honor of long-time PPh supporters, donors, and residents, Mr. Eberhard “Ebbie” and Mrs. Helen Schea.  Ebbie was the manager of our Board of Pensions and an emeritus member of our Board of Directors, while Helen was a member of the PPh Auxiliary.  Ebbie came from a family of generous donors to PPh, and he and Helen continued that tradition.

The endowment was established by Caroline (daughter of Ebbie and Helen) Schea Lloyd and her husband, Jim Lloyd, as well as Frederick “Fred” Schea (son of Ebbie and Helen).  The three scholarship award winners for 2015 are Kathleen Jaskel from Finance, Daniel Loughrey from Fund Development, and Ricardo Pierre from Health Care.  Kathleen is currently working on her Master of Science degree in Accountancy at Holy Family University.  Daniel is studying Healthcare Administration at Philadelphia University.  Ricardo is studying to become a Registered Nurse at Community College of Philadelphia.  As Caroline Lloyd responded when informed of the scholarship award winners, “My parents would have approved.”

Any PPh employee enrolled in a health care-related program (clinical care or healthcare management) can pick up an application for the Schea Scholarship in the Office of Human Resources.

What Residents Say

"In my nine years at PPH, I’ve grown to like it very much. At first, I felt like a stranger and then as I began to talk to people, we increasingly became good friends. A way to meet people is to join clubs. I’m now part of the PPH Auxiliary. I love helping with their flea markets because you never know what you can find. Recently, I’ve joined an evening quilting class. I love that I can continue to enjoy my life outside of PPH while experiencing the offers here.…especially the pool! Everything is just so convenient.

– Lucille Hite, Independent Living resident

What Families Say

"My mom is sooo happy at PPH, I can’t even describe it in strong enough words. She’s met so many new friends and these ladies do EVERYTHING together! She sees Dad every day in Pathways, but can have her life too. She’s gone to so many activities and I think I’ve already been to Scoops with her at least 15 times. She loves the dining room and Bistro too. My sister, Ilene, and I are so delighted that Mom is happy.......Wow, it feels like Mom’s been there about 2 years—but it’s only 2 months!! That’s how comfortable and natural it feels for her – and for all of us.

– Rhonda Frenkel, daughter of resident Bernice Segal
