Each fall and spring semester, Golden Triangle Emergency Center in Orange awards a $250, and $500 scholarship to students enrolled in the LVN and RN program at Lamar State College-Orange, respectively.
Golden Triangle Emergency Center staffs its facilities with top-tier professionals and recognizes the value of investing in the future generations of healthcare providers in our local community. The scholarship recipients must demonstrate passion for the profession in an 800 word essay, have a 3.0 GPA, and submit a resume illustrating a history of excellence.
This year’s LVN scholarship was awarded to Parker Kidder of Orange, Texas. Parker is a nursing student at LSCO and has a GPA of 3.75. Passionate about providing high-quality healthcare with an emphasis on compassion and patient education, Parker stood out as the kind of future healthcare professional that would enrich the workforce. Parker plans to continue his education and pursue a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing upon completion of the LVN program.
Landon Procella of Orange, Texas, is this spring’s RN scholarship recipient. Landon is an LVN who graduated from LSC-O in 2016. Upon graduation, Landon worked as a Medical Surgical Nurse at The Medical Center of SETX. He currently works full-time as a floor nurse and part-time in case management at Post Acute Medical Rehab Hospital of Beaumont while enrolled in the RN program at LSC-O. Landon’s dedication to providing meaningful care to his patients while studying to expand his skill-set in healthcare set his application apart. He plans to apply to a Nurse Practitioner program sometime after graduation.
Golden Triangle Emergency Center would like to congratulate both these men on their accomplishments and wish them luck with their future endeavors.
