The John Heinz Rehab Auxilliary recently awarded its annual Rose Brader scholarships in the amount of $500 each to six local high school seniors who plan to earn degrees in Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Speech Therapy. Funds for the scholarship are raised by the Auxilliary and the scholarship is named in memory of Rose Brader, who was one of the John Heinz Institute first volunteers and was an oustanding community leader.
