Kristin Hall of Jerseyville awarded a University of Illinois Springfield scholarship

Kristin Hall, a resident of Jerseyville and clinical laboratory science major at the University of Illinois Springfield, has been awarded the Central Illinois Community Blood Center Scholarship for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Hall said she transferred to UIS specifically for the CLS major.

“The CLS major at UIS is a highly advanced program in comparison to other schools,” says Hall. “I feel like I have already learned so much and I know that there is so much more to come.”

Hall is on track to graduate this May and has already secured a position in the Surgical Pathology Department at Memorial Medical Center.

“I will be an interactive part of the diagnostic process and help people feel better all from behind the comfort of my microscope,” she said. Hall is also considering several graduate programs in pathology.

The Central Illinois Community Blood Center Scholarship is awarded to junior or senior full-time students enrolled in the Clinical Laboratory Science program at UIS. The scholarship is designed to encourage qualified students to pursue careers as blood banking and transfusion medicine technologists.
