Galloway, NJ, August 23, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- The staff at Platinum Educational Group understand the struggles and obstacles that are presented to students obtaining higher education in the healthcare industries. In 2015, Platinum Educational Group launched its inaugural scholarships program geared at EMS students. In 2016, the company expanded its product line to include the Nursing and Allied Health fields. It seemed only fitting to expand its scholarships program to include the hardworking and dedicated students in those fields as well.
Platinum’s goal is to provide students entering the EMS, Nursing, and Allied Health fields with assistance in funding their education. Former high school teacher, paramedic, and now Platinum CEO Doug Smith states “With the rising costs of tuition and program fees, it’s an honor to assist others in embarking on the dream of providing needed healthcare services to our communities.”
The 2017 Nursing scholarship was awarded to Peggy McFarlane. Ms. McFarlane is enrolled in Stockton University’s Nursing program located in Galloway, NJ. Peggy’s decision to become a nurse, in part, stems from her passion to create awareness and expand diverse community healthcare programs. “My ultimate goal is to expand community services through grant-funded programs and sponsorships to raise awareness, educate and empower residents and provide health screens,” stated Ms. McFarlane.
In 2017 Platinum Educational Group offered three $1000 scholarships with plans on expanding its program with the addition of more scholarship offerings in the future.
“After receiving applications throughout the U.S., as well as internationally, we feel there is a definite need for our scholarship offerings,” said Platinum’s COO and co-founder Tom Gottschalk. He also stated, “It just feels good to give back.”
