VRHF Student Awards 2021

Last year’s recipient Emma Coleman expressed an interest in the medical field as far back as she can remember, a passion which has stayed with her. A graduate of Central Kings Rural High School, Emma completed three summer placements through the school’s Options and Opportunities program – two with Western Kings Memorial Health Centre and one with Valley Regional Hospital, learning to clean surgical instruments, package medicines and assist lab technicians with blood collection. These activities confirmed Emma’s interest in the medical field.

Accepted into St. Francis Xavier’s Nursing program, Emma hopes to work in the Neonatology, Cardiology or Gastroenterology areas. We wish her all the best in her studies and were very proud to award Emma the 2020 Student Award Bursary.
