Lactation Credentials Scholarships
This year, we decided to offer our first lactation credential scholarships! The scholarships will cover the total cost of a Certified Lactation Specialist (CLS) or Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) course or will cover the testing costs associated with sitting for the IBCLC exam. This year, we had TONS of wonderful applications, so we selected two recipients. Logan Roy and Tanya Polansky were this year's winners!
Logan Roy, a teen mom with a huge impact on others was selected as one recipient. She has a passion for safety, breastfeeding and helping others! Tanya Polansky was our second recipient. She is a daycare provider who is very passionate about breastfeeding! We are thrilled to have both of these women serving the Wood County community after their June CLS training!
