The Volunteer Services Organization (VSO) at East Cooper Medical Center (ECMC) recently awarded $1,000 scholarships to 13 deserving students from the local area.
The recipients are all enrolled, or soon will be, in a medical or health science field of study.
The Wishing Well Gift Shop at the hospital is managed by volunteers and each year sales from the gift shop and other fundraisers go towards local charities, purchasing medicines for patients in need and to fund scholarships for area students.
The scholarships were presented at a gathering and celebration in the Volunteer Memory Garden located on the grounds of the East Cooper Medical Center.
