LEWES (March 15, 2022) – The Village Improvement Association (VIA) of Rehoboth has awarded first-year Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing students Ava Moroz of Millsboro and Madison Tuttle of Rehoboth Beach with scholarships.

This year the VIA increased the total award amount to $5,000 in support of our future nurses and in appreciation for the care nurses have provided during the pandemic.
