Hospital Auxiliary Continues to Support ATC Students
The Hospital Auxiliary of Aiken County, Inc. has continued its support of Aiken Technical College students with a recent $5,000 donation to fund scholarships for nursing and health science students.
“We volunteer in the medical field and see the activities those in the medical field do on a daily basis,” said Allen Radcliffe, president of the Hospital Auxiliary of Aiken County. “We feel that we need to support students to get the education they need to be productive employees at local hospitals. We are thrilled to be able to contribute to their education.”
The organization presented the donation to the College on May 2, before the spring nursing pinning ceremony. More than 20 nursing graduates of the Associate in Applied Science: Nursing program were recognized.
“The Aiken Technical College Foundation is grateful for the support of the Hospital Auxiliary of Aiken County,” said Dr. Beth LaClair, ATC Foundation Director. “Their support in funding the education of nursing and health science students not only helps students, but all of us in the community who rely on these professions for our health care.”
The Hospital Auxiliary of Aiken County’s donation will support scholarships for students enrolled in nursing, radiologic technology, surgical technology, medical assisting, and dental assisting programs.
