Hospital Auxiliary scholarship helps student succeed
Allison Hill, pictured here in her days as a standout on the Camden High School girls softball team, is now in her second semester at Lander College. She receives aid from a scholarship awarded by the Hospital Auxiliary of KershawHealth. These scholarships are made possible by Auxiliary fundraising events such as the annual golf tournament. The Auxiliarys 25th consecutive golf tournament will be held September 4 at the Camden Country Club.
Allison Hill is a 21st century woman embarking on a promising future in nursing with an assist from women who were born in the nineteenth century. When Allison -- a KershawHealth volunteer since she was 14 years old -- began her college studies at Lander College last fall, she stood on the shoulders of women who worked tirelessly and selflessly to arrive at that moment -- that moment they would never see -- when a very special young woman entered training for a lifetime of service with a scholarship in hand from the organization they began more than 100 years ago. At a meeting in her Camden home in February 1912, Mrs. John W. Corbett suggested an organization to raise funds toward the building and equipment of a fledgling Camden hospital.
