The Darice Metzler Memorial Scholarship

Award Amount: $8,000 Grand Prize

The Darice Metzler Memorial Scholarship was created to pay tribute to a revered colleague who lost her courageous battle with cancer. In honor of Darice, this Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to the HealthChannels employee who has best exemplified the traits of commitment to excellence and a willingness to support others in the workplace and in their community as they continue to pursue their dream of becoming a healthcare provider.

About Darice

At HealthChannels, our coworkers are like extended family to all of us, and so it is our honor to remember and celebrate the life of Darice Metzler. Darice joined the company in California in 2008. In 2009 Darice relocated to Miami, Florida as Director of Strategic Planning and Client Relations and set up ScribeAmerica's administrative office. In 2012 she was appointed Chief Administrative Officer, directing a variety of internal management and support services. 

Darice tragically passed away in 2017 from a rare form of cancer and will be deeply missed. 

Darcie was committed to helping those in need, and cared deeply about many social issues facing those in her community, including adoption, hunger and poverty. Due to the lasting impression that Darice has left on our team, we are honoring her memory by offering the Darice Metzler Memorial Scholarship to members of our HealthChannels family that displays a passion for healthcare and a passion for community service.

"If you ask anyone that knows Darice to describe her there is a common thread that emerges. She is selfless, kind, caring, encouraging and beautiful both inside and out. Darice’s love and compassion extended not only to her family and friends but to all those less fortunate than herself. She had immense affinity for animals and was actively involved in the Goats of Anarchy, a non-profit organisation that cares for abandoned, abused and disabled goats. She was driven, hardworking and always gave of her best.

Darice left a legacy that I am incredibly proud to live up to, she will always be my role model and I will strive to make her proud every day. She has taught me the true meaning of strength and dignity and showed me the importance of balance. I know I am able to face any obstacle with the strength and fire she instilled in me."
