Lakeside Lutheran Senior Elizabeth Cichanofsky, daughter of Mike and Shelly Cichanofsky, of Watertown, was awarded the Handeyside Memorial Scholarship, which is funded and supported by the Fort HealthCare Medical Staff. The award was created by Dr. Robert Handeyside, a doctor at Fort Hospital for many years, and continued by his family when he became terminally ill. It was important to him to financially support students who were seeking careers in the health field.
The scholarship is given to students who display an interest in the health field, leadership qualities, scholastic achievement, and excellent moral character. Cichanofsky has a grade point of 3.91 and is ranked seventh in her class. She will attend Carroll University to receive a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science and a Doctorate in Physical Therapy.
