Young volunteers learn about KershawHeath
KershawHealth teen volunteers (from left) are Harrison Kruger, Sawyer Watts, Zalak Shah, Allison Hill, Bethany Parrott, Emilee Hunter, Chelsea Watson and Cori Maness-Mulder.
Why would more than a dozen teen and college students spend a portion of their summer vacation volunteering at KershawHealth medical center? For some -- especially younger students -- it’s a chance to gain valuable work experience. Others are looking for opportunities that can help give life to a medical school applicant’s personal statement, or add valuable "points" to school or scholarship applications to give them a competitive edge.
