Helen Krieger Outstanding Healthcare Provider Award

Award Amount: $1,000

The Helen Krieger Outstanding Healthcare Provider Award was developed to recognize a healthcare provider who has made a significant contribution to the lives of students and families by providing excellence in healthcare and healthcare education. Mrs. Krieger, a former registered nurse, school nurse, and healthcare provider and educator with the Head Start Program, formed strong and productive relationships with co-workers and children in fulfilling her caring mission of meeting healthcare needs and improving healthcare education. Jim and Penny Krieger created this award, which includes a stipend, to honor Helen Krieger and her dedication to youth in our community.
