After 15 years, it was proved that the heart of Lone Star College-Montgomery’s “Healthier U Wellness Expo and Job Fair” is still beating strong. The 2012 event, which marked the 15th anniversary of the annual wellness event, raised more than $24,500 for student scholarships.

“We’re grateful for our generous sponsors and the many participants who were able to make this year’s event a huge success,” said Mary Rush, division operations manager and Healthier U coordinator. “Because of their support, many students in health-related and other programs will have the opportunity to continue their education.”

Healthier U raises scholarship funds that benefit students primarily in the college’s nursing, medical radiologic technology, physical therapist assistant, fire science technology, and emergency medical services programs.

The proceeds generated over the past 15 years have allowed the organization to fund four $1,000 endowed scholarship that will be awarded to students in perpetuity. This is in addition to the approximately 25 to 35 $500 scholarships awarded to students each year.
