Nineteen area high school seniors were recently awarded scholarships by the medical staff of Reston Hospital Center.
The students, from Fairfax and Loudoun County high schools, were chosen for academic excellence and excitement for pursuing a career in healthcare, an Reston Hospital Center spokeswoman said.
“These students are well deserving of the medical staff scholarships as they begin their journeys of exploring careers in the healthcare field,” said John Deardorff, President and CEO of Reston Hospital Center. “We hope that one day they return to their roots as members of our local medical community.”
