Springfield, VT – Morgan Brown, class of 2018 from Black River High School in Ludlow, Vermont, is this year’s recipient of the Dr. E. Sherburne Lovell Health Career Award. This award contributes $1,000 annually toward a student’s academic pursuit of a career in health care. It is funded by the proceeds of the Apple Blossom Cotillion, a project of the Development Office of Springfield Medical Care Systems.
Dr. Lovell was a long-time physician at Springfield Hospital. His daughter, Melissa Post, states, “While he was a man who never sought recognition for his service in the medical field or in the community, we know he would be honored to have this award named in his memory. We hope recipients of the award will share the same sense of wonder and fascination with the world of medicine that he did.”
Morgan will be studying Neuroscience at the University of New England in the fall. Her career goal is to attend medical school and become a trauma surgeon.
To be eligible for the award, students must attend AHEC’s MedQuest program. Application information for the Lovell Health Career Award is available from Southern Vermont AHEC at 802-885-2126 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
