The Southeast Georgia Health System Brunswick and Camden Campus Auxiliaries presented $1,000 scholarship awards to six graduating seniors who served as Volunteens at the health system and plan to pursue degrees in the health care field.
The Volunteens received their scholarships during awards presentations at their high schools and were also recognized at the Auxiliary’s June quarterly meetings. The Brunswick Campus Auxiliary scholarship winners included Nicholas Bulatao, Tyjah Johnson and Nautica Paige Watson. The Camden Campus Auxiliary scholarship winners included Camden County High School graduates Dorrian Casey from White Oak, Olivia Irvin from St. Marys and Palak Patel from Kingsland.
The Volunteen program is designed for teenagers, ages 14-18, who enjoy helping others and have a desire to learn more about health care and volunteerism. Graduating high school seniors who served at least 20 hours through the Volunteen program and plan to pursue careers in health care were encouraged to apply for the Auxiliary scholarships offered at the Brunswick and Camden campuses.
