The Medical Center, Navicent Health Auxiliary is pleased to announce the winners of the 2020 Don Faulk Teen Volunteer Scholarship. The scholarship is presented annually to three outstanding teens who have participated in Navicent Health's teen volunteer program.

The following 2020 recipients each received awards:

The scholarships are awarded to students who have volunteered their time at Navicent Health through the health system's Teen Volunteer Program. Scholarships, named in honor of former CEO Don Faulk, are funded through The Medical Center, Navicent Health Auxiliary.

""Teens accepted into the program commit to give no less than 100 hours of total service. However, circumstances beyond the teens control prevented this year's class from completing that commitment. In March, the program was suspended due to COVID-19. Despite the disruption, our Auxilians decided to award this year's scholarship. Our three scholarship recipients were tremendous blessings to the units where they served and exceeded or were on track to exceed their commitment. We are glad to have the opportunity to support their education,"" said Mary Robertson, President of The Medical Center, Navicent Health Auxiliary.

Navicent Health hopes to resume the Teen Volunteer Program in 2021. Students interested in applying may find more information at Teen volunteers must be at least 16 years of age.
