For more than a decade The Association of Multicultural Members of Partners (AMMP) has assisted employees of multicultural backgrounds in their efforts to pursue college degrees and other educational opportunities. On Sept. 5, the 2013 AMMP Scholarship recipients were honored during a ceremony in the East Garden Room. This year’s recipients are Karima Ricketts, Sandra Thomas, Jennifer Nunes, Abdul Musanur, Tirza Martinez and Khristel Cherismo.

“You have chosen to continue your education, which gives you the ability to change your future,” said Dee Dee Chen, professional staff benefits manager and AMMP executive board chair. “Thank you for the contributions and support you have already made to this hospital, and I know we all look forward to what each of you will share with us and the world as you continue to unlock new doors in the future.”

Farhiya Mohamoud – a two-time scholarship winner who works as a senior histology specialist in the Department of Pathology – earned her MBA from Regis College last spring and is now paying it forward. “I am already giving back to AMMP as the nomination co-chair and to MGH as a supporter of the My Giving Helps campaign, and I am looking into other ways to help further the missions of both MGH and AMMP,” she said.
