At a ceremony on September 27, Courtney Furman, chairman of the Self Regional Healthcare Foundation and Ken Coffey, executive director of the Self Regional Healthcare Foundation, presented a check for $170,000 to PTC President Dr. Ray Brooks and Health Care Dean Tara Harris. The funds will be used to help support the nursing curriculum at PTC and to address the immediate need for additional faculty to serve students majoring in the college’s nursing programs.
The Self Regional Healthcare Foundation’s scholarship program is built on community campaigns and fundraising that ensure qualified and talented individuals have the opportunity to pursue a career in healthcare.
The M. John and Drenda Heydel Respiratory Therapy scholarship, named in honor of former respiratory therapist and Self Regional Healthcare President and CEO John Heydel and his wife Drenda, is available to first- and second-year students enrolled in the respiratory therapy program at Piedmont Technical College.
