Madison Streeter wins Lovell Award

Madison Streeter, Bellows Falls Union High School Class of 2019 graduate is the ninth recipient of the Dr. E. Sherburne Lovell Health Career Award.  This award contributes $1000 annually toward a student’s academic pursuit of a career in health care.  It is funded by the proceeds of the Apple Blossom Cotillion, a project of the Development Office of Springfield Medical Care Systems.  Madison is pictured with Mary Perry, Chair of the Springfield Hospital/SMCS Development Committee and Robert Crego, Executive Director of Southern Vermont Area Health Education Center (AHEC).

Dr. Lovell was a longtime physician at Springfield Hospital.  His daughters, Melissa Post and Elizabeth David, said, “While he was a man who never sought recognition for his service in the medical field or in the community, we know he would be honored to have this award named in his memory.  We hope recipients of the award will share the same sense of wonder and fascination with the world of medicine that he did.”

Streeter will be a nursing student at Rivier University in Nashua, NH in the fall.  She became interested in health care when she was young, and she attended the Southern Vermont Area Health Education Center (AHEC) MedQuest program.

To be eligible for the award, students must live in one of the towns served by Springfield Medical Care System and attend AHEC’s MedQuest program.  Information on this program is available by contacting Southern Vermont AHEC at (802) 885-2126 or emailing
