Local college student with goal of becoming physician awarded River Parishes Medical Society scholarship
Each year RPMS awards local high school graduates that are going into the college study of a healthcare related field.
The RPMS is comprised of physician members who practice in St. Charles, St. John the Baptist and St. James parishes. The organization awards three scholarships, one for each parish. The RPMS’s goal is to encourage young men and women to pursue studies in the healthcare field.
Every year, a physician member for each parish volunteers to notify the high schools of the RPMS Scholarship Program. The students are required to submit their high school transcripts and a one to two page essay about themselves and why they have chosen that particular healthcare field.
For 2013, the representative physicians on the scholarship selection committee were Dr. Farida Baig for St. John the Baptist, Dr. Roland Waguespack of St. James and Dr. Brian Brogle for St. Charles.
