At a recent ceremony, these eight junior volunteers at Twin Cities Community Hospital received scholarships totaling $17,000, which will go toward their college education: Alyssa Scott, Anthony Garcia, Dyvat Ranat, Ethan Todd, Kayla Terry, Mattie Lindsey, Melanie Harris and Sarah Farrar.
Funds for the junior volunteer scholarship program at Twin Cities come from profits earned in the volunteer-run hospital gift shop and other fundraisers. The junior volunteer program requires students maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0 and volunteer a minimum of 120 hours at the hospital.
Volunteers at Twin Cities Community Hospital are a vital part of the hospital, providing a great resource for patients, families, visitors and employees.
