Respiratory Scholarship Awarded

July 08, 2011

Through generous employee donations, the TRMC Foundation is able to administer a scholarship to reward a respiratory therapy student with excellent academic performance and financial need.

TRMC Respiratory Services employees began collecting funds for the scholarship, which began as $500 and has now grown to $1,500.

The recipient of the scholarship is chosen based on an application, class performance, and financial need, and there is no obligation for the student to work at TRMC following graduation. Although the scholarship does not include a commitment to TRMC, one recipient has already chosen to join the team.

Applicants represent institutions with strong respiratory therapy programs, such as Darton College, Southwest Georgia Technical College and Okefenokee Technical College, where the fourth and most recent winner, Presley Thornton attends.
