Students, Parents, Teachers & Friends of Education,

Northeast Georgia Medical Center Barrow's priority of investing in the future of Barrow County students was demonstrated by providing a scholarship designed to acknowledge high school students seeking a career in healthcare.

Congratulations goes to (L) Katherine Narciso at Winder-Barrow High School and (R) Stephanie Montoya at Apalachee High School for being awarded this $500 scholarship.

Katherine has been accepted to attend Mercer University and intends to study biology with the goal of becoming a doctor. Stephanie will be attending Georgia Gwinnett College and intends to pursue a career as a Cardiothoracic Surgeon.
