Chiropractic Economics gave Janna Cottingame and Taryn Lowery 5,000 dollars each. Lowery revealed how she will be using the scholarship. “I am opening a practice after graduation in December,” said Lowery. “This scholarship is going directly to the ‘practice fund.’ I have waited three very long years to fulfill this dream of not only owning my own business, but of serving the lives of the loving families in my community.”
Also sponsoring a scholarship, Standard Process gave 5,000 dollars to Carol Watkins. “This scholarship will allow me to further my chiropractic education by providing the financial ability to attend seminars, including 2010 Parker Seminar Las Vegas,” said Watkins. “This furthering of my education will allow me to provide better care for my patients.”
Chiropractic Leadership Alliance allotted Jacob Hansen and Mary Sue Branch 3,750 dollars each. “My family and I can’t even begin to express how grateful and blessed we are for their generosity,” said Hansen. “I don’t think it is possible for them to understand how much this means to us. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank them for their support and for this incredible gift.”
Performance Health presented Lindsay McIinnis with 3,750 dollars. “I am very appreciative to Dr. Dana Mackison and Performance Health for their generosity,” said McInnis. “Companies that put money back into the profession by investing in students really make a difference. This scholarship has alleviated some financial burden and allowed me to focus more on my studies which will in turn greatly enhance the care of my patients.”
Additional scholarship sponsors included Pro Solutions who gave 3,750 dollars to Paul Stadler, Erchonia who allotted 3,750 dollars to Erin Spindler, Douglas Labs designated 2,500 to Dan Sullins, and B&D Enterprises gave Ashley Posa 1,000 dollars.
