Ben Tatro Memorial Healthcare Scholarship

Established in 2018, the Ben Tatro Memorial Healthcare Scholarship provides financial assistance to care providers seeking to advance their healthcare education. Recipients exemplify the spirit of caring for others that was demonstrated by the scholarship’s namesake and former Cheshire Medical Center care provider, Ben Tatro.

As an Emergency Technician in Cheshire’s Emergency Department (ED), Ben was beloved by all ED employees. His loss will always be keenly felt by Cheshire’s staff, many of whom honor his memory every Friday by wearing the color red as Ben often did. 

Ben embodied service, commitment and care for others. In addition to serving for 23 years in the fire service, he had achieved his Advanced Emergency Medical Technician certification and was planning to return to school to get his nursing degree.
