For a woman who spent so much of her life helping others achieve their goals, a scholarship program named in her memory is a fitting tribute. June Roedel (1929-1996) was a positive, sensitive and caring woman who generously volunteered her time and many talents to charitable organizations throughout the Berks County community. For more than ten years, she played an integral role at Community General Hospital serving as vice chairman of the hospital trustees in 1987, and as chairman from 1989 to 1992. It was her vision and leadership that helped initiate this scholarship program. All applicants will be notified in May. Berks County Community Foundation employees, board members and/or committee members are not eligible to apply for or be nominated for a scholarship offered by Berks County Community Foundation, nor are their immediate family members. However, immediate family members are eligible to be nominated and recognized as the recipient of a scholarship, but without the financial award of the scholarship. Immediate families include spouses; children, stepchildren, grandchildren, stepgrandchildren, and their respective spouses; siblings and their spouses; and ancestors. The ineligibility period for Berks County Community Foundation board members or employees and their family members extends five years after board service or employment terminates.
