Flaget Memorial Hospital Hosts Luncheon to Support Bruce A. Klockars
Employee Scholarship Fund

Bardstown, Ky. (April 13, 2017)—The Flaget Memorial Hospital Foundation, part of KentuckyOne Health, will host a luncheon to support the Bruce A. Klockars Employee Scholarship Fund, which provides funds to hospital employees to continue their education. The event will take place Friday, April 28, 2017 at 11:30 a.m. at the Maywood Bardstown Country Club, 130 Maywood Avenue.

The featured speaker will be WDRB Sports Journalist Eric Crawford, who joined WDRB in June of 2012 after working at The Courier-Journal as a sports columnist. He has been honored with multiple sports-writing awards, including being named the Kentucky Sportswriter of the Year from the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association, and a winner of the Red Smith Writing Award for Kentucky Derby coverage. His work has appeared in national publications and websites.

All proceeds from the event will go to the Flaget Memorial Hospital Foundation’s Bruce A. Klockars Employee Scholarship Fund, which was established in 2011 in honor of a retired Flaget Memorial Hospital president. Since then, the Foundation has provided more than $31,000 in scholarships to Flaget Memorial Hospital employees through this fund. The scholarships enable nursing and other health care employees who show a need for financial assistance to continue their education and other professional growth. Scholarships may be used to obtain or further a degree, achieve certification, or purchase books, study guides, or pay for exam fees.

“Having the Bruce Klockars Scholarship Fund pay for my study materials and testing removed a barrier to getting this certification,” said Jill Clark, Cancer Center nurse oncologist. “I am grateful for the Foundation and hospital leadership that had the foresight to establish the fund.”

The fund’s goals are to promote the development of enhanced caregiving expertise, elevate the practice of health care to the highest standards, and enable the hospital to continue recruiting and retaining the best and the brightest at all levels.

Individual tickets to the luncheon are $100 and corporate sponsorships are available. For more information, contact Angela Billings at 502.350.5058 or visit
