And the Winners are…
Orangeburg, SC- Students in the Orangeburg area were granted an opportunity through the Summer Enrichment Program to experience a hospital setting in a practical sense offered by the Regional Medical Center.
According to trmchealth.org, this is the 27th year in a row students who plan on pursuing a career in the medical field were given a chance to have hands-on experience in the hospital, which is sponsored by the Regional Medical Center (RMC) Auxiliary.
Not only were the area students able to spend part of their summer receiving firsthand medical experience, they were also awarded various scholarships pertaining to their field of study in health. Two scholarship funds were set up in honor of the passing of two doctors who were highly devoted in the hospital and had a knack for making sure students who were aspiring to go in the medical field were financially set for college.
According to the site, the students who were enrolled in the SEP were able to apply for the Mabry Scholarship and Myers Scholarship where the requirements entailed community service, academic excellence and the 2014 SEP completion.
Andreal Williams, a 2014 Edisto High School graduate, was awarded the Mabry Scholarship and will be attending Claflin University where she will study psychology, whereas Danielle Johnson, a 2014 Bamberg-Ehrhardt High School graduate, was awarded the Myers Scholarship and will be attending the University of South Carolina at Aiken where she will study nursing.
“The Summer Enrichment Program was an awesome opportunity to help me be closer to my dream of becoming a certified registered nurse anesthetist,” Johnson commented. “Mrs. Donna Greene has made a huge impact on my life. I will never forget all the lessons she taught me in my short time in surgery.”
The RMC Auxiliary set up the H. Filmore Mabry Scholarship Endowment to honor Mabry’s service who passed away in 1995 and the Dr. Irene Myers Scholarship Fund commemorating her service in public education for more than 40 years who passed away in 2008.
