2014 SEAHEC Karen Halverson Scholars

With your help, SEAHEC awarded ten Karen Halverson Memorial Scholarships to seniors pursuing a career in healthcare in Arizona. SEAHEC enjoyed an exciting and successful spring this year as our high school and health professions students made inspiring discoveries in their exploration of rural health career opportunities in southeast Arizona. SEAHEC would like to express our thanks to those who supported our Arizona Gives Day campaign with your generous contributions. SEAHEC’s Future Healthcare Leaders (FHL) program creates opportunities for rural youth to explore health careers, achieve their professional potential, increase economic earnings, and ultimately contribute to improving health services in their own communities. SEAHEC has health career clubs in Bisbee, Willcox and Douglas high schools, in Cochise County, Nogales and Rio Rico high schools in Santa Cruz County, Pueblo Magnet High School in Tucson, and Baboquivari High School and Tohono O’odham High School on the Tohono O’odham Nation. This year, 100% of FHL seniors graduated high school, and 94 percent applied for financial aid and were accepted to college. SEAHEC awarded ten scholarships to students in five out of eight clubs. Career Choices included: Registered Nurse 37%, Medicine 27% Psychologist 9%, Undecided 9%, other 18%. Continue reading
