Lynn Scible Memorial
The Lynn Scible Memorial Scholarship provides financial assistance to nurses attending the Crossroads Professionals Rehabilitation Outpatient Program (PROP) at the Kolmac Clinic in Baltimore. PROP specializes in working with licensed healthcare professionals struggling with the disease of addiction. Professionals who dedicate their lives to helping others often overlook their own needs. In PROP nurses can learn ways to manage stress and share with others who have experienced the very same isolation, strain, and deep feelings of hopelessness.
Lynn Scible RN, CAC-AD, ran PROP for more than 17 years until her death in 2010. Lynn’s work with the nursing boards and hospital nurse administrators yielded her great acclaim and established PROP as an authority, both in the addiction treatment community and the healthcare work environment. Despite her battle with multiple sclerosis, which moved her from fully functional to walker to wheelchair over time, Lynn maintained her sunny outlook on life until the very end, providing a powerful example to those with whom she worked in treatment.
