Columbus Regional Healthcare System recently awarded four $1,000 scholarships to HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) students who would like a future in the health care industry. Each student completed a second level Health Occupation Class at their high schools.
This year’s recipients were Nicole McClary, West Columbus High School, Morgan Elizabeth Nye, South Columbus High School, Ahjanae Baldwin, East Columbus High School, and Avionna Powell, Whiteville High School.
They were honored at a luncheon at CRHS.
