We are always in awe of the stories of all scholarship applicants and it is moving to see their positive attitude despite the challenges they face in life.
OKLAHOMA CITY (PRWEB)
180 Medical, one of America’s leading providers of intermittent catheterization and ostomy supplies, is pleased to announce the eight winners of the 180 Medical College Scholarship Program and the 180 Medical Ron Howell Caregiver College Scholarship.
The 180 Medical College Scholarship Program, originally created in 2012 by founder Todd Brown, is offered to college students with certain medical conditions including: spinal cord injury, spina bifida, transverse myelitis, neurogenic bladder and/or stoma (ileostomy, urostomy, or colostomy ). Since then, 180 Medical has awarded over 60 scholarships to students who have experienced challenges and financial strains that have made it difficult to pay for college and achieve their goals.
Todd’s hope in creating the 180 Medical Scholarship program was to help eligible students better afford college expenses so they could pursue their dreams and “pass them on” by making a positive impact on the world .
The 180 Medical Ron Howell Caregiver College Scholarship was established in 2020 to honor former 180 Medical President Ron Howell upon his retirement. This scholarship program aims to help college students who are unpaid caregivers for a loved one living with a chronic disability. Recognizing that these students often face limited financial resources and time, 180 Medical created this scholarship program to support these selfless caregivers in pursuing their career dreams.
“We are always in awe of the stories of all scholarship applicants and it is moving to see their positivity despite the challenges they face in life. So many of them want to use their experiences to help others and it’s an honor to be able to continue our founder Todd Brown’s original vision of helping these young students with an education so they can achieve their calling.” – Mark Jassey, Chief Commercial Officer
