The winner of Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health’s 2018 Weaver E. Falberg Leadership Promise Fellowship award is Amy White, payroll and finance specialist at Devereux Georgia.

White will receive a $30,000 fellowship to pursue a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Brenau University in Gainesville, Ga. She was presented with the prestigious award on November 16 during a dinner with Devereux’s Board of Trustees, members of Devereux’s senior leadership team and the Pennsylvania Advisory Board, and other Devereux friends and supporters. 

“I will enter Brenau University with the experience, worth ethic, devotion and enthusiasm it will take to successfully complete the BBA program,” White wrote in her fellowship application. “My education will allow me to further my career at Devereux, while also working in a nonprofit capacity.”  

White joined Devereux Georgia in 2013 as a file clerk and was quickly promoted to case manager within the organization’s Therapeutic Foster Care program. In 2015, she decided to change career paths and joined Devereux Georgia’s Finance Department as a finance support specialist. She was promoted to her current position in 2017.  

Congratulations to the runners-up!

Two runners-up also were presented with fellowship awards during the special dinner. Amy Doles, program manager at Devereux Florida, will receive a $20,000 fellowship to pursue a master’s degree in applied behavior analysis online at Capella University.  

Jessica Lyles, revenue quality system manager at Devereux Corporate, will receive a $10,000 fellowship to finish earning her Master of Business Administration degree with a concentration in healthcare administration from Eastern University in St. Davids, Pa.
