As part of the 2009 event, more than $23,000 in scholarships was awarded to more than 30 students. The event primarily benefits students in the nursing, radiologic technology, and physical therapist assistant programs; however, since the college has expanded its program offerings to include emergency responders, proceeds from Healthier U will also provide scholarships for students in the fire science and emergency medical technician programs.
Sue Fagnant, a first-year student in the physical therapist assistant program, was the recipient of the first Healthier U endowed scholarship, completed in 2009. The $1,000 scholarship will enable her to continue the program and ultimately, fulfill her goal to work as a physical therapist assistant here in the community.
"I'm honored and so pleased to be the recipient of this scholarship," said Fagnant. "I'm enrolled in a wonderful, yet challenging program at an excellent school, and I can guarantee that this scholarship was money well spent."
