Jeena Greenwalt, a former twenty-year NEDSRA employee, including three as NEDSRA’s Executive Director, died on May 30, 2015 at the young age of 49. Jeena is fondly remembered for so many reasons, but mostly for her relentless SPIRIT, her ENTHUSIASM and LOVE for life, her ever-present SMILE, her relentless COURAGE, and the positive IMPACT she had on the lives of the individuals she touched – especially those of our NEDSRA Participants.
Each year at the RISE Awards, we award a NEDSRA participant with the “Jeena Greenwalt Spirit and Scholarship Award.” This award will be given to an individual who most exemplifies and demonstrates the traits of Jeena.
In order to qualify for the Jeena Greenwalt Scholarship, the applicant must:
