Singing River Health System Awards Students with Scholarships

Dozens of local college-bound students will get help pursuing their careers in health care, thanks to some hefty scholarships through Singing River.
Singing River Health System Auxiliaries recently awarded more than $10,000 in scholarships to 15 local students pursuing degrees in health care. The scholarships range from $500 to $1000. Student recipients have announced plans to study in various fields of health care.
Richard Lucas from Singing River Health System said, “ This is the next generation of health care employees, and I can tell you, many young people have gotten these scholarships over the years then five to ten years later, I’ll see them around the halls of the hospital and say ‘hey, weren’t you one of our scholarship winners?’ Absolutely. That’s where they come from, we have department heads, and many have gone on to be doctors.”
Students who received the scholarships are pursuing degrees varying from nursing and physical therapy to pre-med and biology.
