Hospital Auxiliary Awards Scholarship
Ethan Billups, a 2019 graduate of Ridgeway R-V School, earned a $1,000 college scholarship from the Harrison County Community Hospital Auxiliary. Students entering a health or medical field were eligible to apply for the scholarship.
Billups is planning to complete an undergraduate degree in biological sciences at the University of Missouri-Columbia. He then plans to attend medical school and specialize in pediatric rheumatology.
Auxiliary volunteers operate the hospital gift shop and use profits to purchase equipment for the hospital and provide college scholarships to help support the next generation of health care professionals.
