The Cindy Taylor Nursing Scholarship was established in memory of Cindy Taylor by her family and friends in 2010. A softball tournament is hosted by the Huntingdon Women's Softball League each year with the proceeds being added to the scholarship fund. Ms. Taylor was involved in softball her entire life, playing and coaching until a year before she died. She was also known for her caring spirit, working as an LPN for 35 years. This year's softball tournament will be held Saturday, August 25, 2012. For more information on entering a team in the tournament or making a donation, please contact Melissa Wible Hobbs at 814-386-3883 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
