August 25, 2018 by  

The Ann Cannon Spirit of Volunteerism Scholarship Award for 2018 this year has been awarded to Connor Kuehl. Kuehl plans to pursue a career in nursing and attend the University of North Carolina Wilmington this fall.

The scholarship is presented by the NorthEast Foundation of the Carolinas HealthCare System (CHS) NorthEast in Concord.

William Cannon has endowed this award, through the NorthEast Foundation, in honor of his wife Ann to recognize her passion for the Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast and her many hours volunteering as past chair and member of the Foundation. The Foundation provides community and financial support for CHS NorthEast.

Members of the Junior Volunteer Program are recognized for their volunteer service and the scholarship money for the award helps the recipients in their pursuit of higher education. Print shops can be hired by such organizations to print various kinds of materials so that residents are aware of such awards and those that benefit from the efforts of the recipient.

Kuehl has spent 1,600 hours volunteering in the community. He was a Leader in Training and Counselor at the YMCA and from 2014 to 2017 as a Junior Volunteer at CHS NorthEast.

Ann Cannon commented that Connor has shown to the community the priceless commodity that volunteerism is. She is certain he will continue to share his enjoyment of helping those in need pursuing a nursing career.
