The Coffee Regional Medical Center Volunteers are pleased to announce that their 2020 Wiregrass Georgia Technical College Medical Scholarship was recently awarded to Keyonna Carson, Patient Care Technician (PCT) at Coffee Regional Medical Center (CRMC).
The Wiregrass Georgia Technical College Medical Scholarship, in the amount of $1,000, is awarded annually to a Coffee County student by the CRMC Volunteers. The Volunteers have proudly awarded this scholarship for over 15 years. There is no requirement that the scholarship be awarded to a CRMC employee. The Volunteers were however excited to honor a hard-working CRMC healthcare hero this year. This year’s scholarship was presented by Brenda G. Veal, current Chairwoman of the CRMC Volunteer Scholarship Committee.
Scholarship recipient, Keyonna Carson, began her healthcare career as a Patient Care Technician (PCT) in 2016 with CRMC. She is currently employed full-time by CRMC, working throughout the hospital, including assisting in the COVID unit. Her hard work and dedication to patient care set a great example for her co-workers. In addition to working full-time as a PCT, she has continued her education at Wiregrass Georgia Technical College to complete her degree as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). She expects to receive her LPN license in May 2021. Additionally, after receiving her LPN license, Keyonna plans to further her education and work toward her license as a Registered Nurse.
