Ninth Annual Teen Girls Go to College Held at ASU-MH

The Schliemann Center for Women's Health Education of Baxter Regional Medical Center hosted the ninth annual Teen Girls Go to College event at The Sheid on the campus of Arkansas State University-Mountain Home on Thursday, March 16. Over 150 students from 11 area school districts enjoyed a day of education and empowerment.

Special guest speakers included Corinne Hiser, APRN, a nurse practitioner at Regional Family Medicine and founding member of the SCWHE Advisory Board, and Sara Anderson of ASU-MH Student Services. These women shared inspirational messages that encouraged students to continue their education in pursuit of their dreams.

Over 30 professions were represented by local business women who volunteered their time during the Career Fair segment of the event. Educators and staff from ASU-MH were also present to meet with students and answer their questions about enrollment and financial aid.

Another highlight of the event is the annual scholarship awards ceremony, with 22 scholarships valued at more than $20,000 awarded. Funding for the scholarships is provided by donors who have made a contribution to Baxter Regional Hospital Foundation as well as the ASU-MH Foundation specifically designated for the Teen Girls Go to College program. This year's donors included John and Janice Anderson, Tom and Janie Robbins, Josee Schliemann, the SCWHE Advisory Board in memory of Dr. Mary Wren, Mary Margaret Pearson in honor of Janice Anderson, Lori Kauffman and Janie Robbins, and the Loyd Fund.
