NORTH CHARLESTON, SC – The South Carolina Stingrays, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Washington Capitals and AHL’s Hershey Bears, announced on Thursday their collaboration with Miller-Motte College to provide educational opportunities to individuals in the Charleston community.
In an effort to provide career-focused technical training to students looking to enter the workforce, the Stingrays and MMC may give away two $3,500 scholarships every month this season from now through March of 2022. Students will be able to pursue career training in Medical Billing and Coding, Business Administration, or as a Medical Clinical Assistant.
“We are so excited to work with the Stingrays,” says MMC Executive Director Vanessa Euresti. “This year's initiative was to connect with community partners and give back to the communities we serve. This was the perfect opportunity for us to join forces and impact lives together.”
Winners of the Stingrays Scholarship must use the funds within three months of being awarded the scholarship. Recipients must also maintain satisfactory academic progress, adhere to the MMC Code of Conduct policy, and be continuously enrolled in their selected program until completion.
“The Stingrays are thrilled to partner with Miller-Motte College for our inaugural Stingrays Scholarship program,” says President Rob Concannon. “The numerous programs MMC offers in the areas of Business, Healthcare, and CDL Training are essential to today’s world.
