Talbert House celebrated the life of its late vice president, Pam McClain, and introduced the inaugural McClain Scholarship recipients March 8 at its executive office.

Recipients of the scholarships were:

  • Amy Bleser, a behavioral health supervisor earning a master’s degree in counseling
  • Audrey Dumas, an administrative specialist in finance working toward a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice
  • Emily McCracken, a clinical service provider for Court and Corrections obtaining a master’s degree in social work
  • Renee Phelia, an activity and security monitor for Court and Corrections working on a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice
  • Chasity Rush, a Court and Corrections supervisor earning a master’s degree in counseling.

McClain devoted her life’s work to Talbert House, and after nearly 40 years, she remained a champion for the clients and families in the agency’s care.
