Greg Stovring, a freshman at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, has been named the recipient of the AED.US Scholarship. Greg was chosen by Coro Medical, home of AED.US, to receive a $1,500 scholarship.
AED.US Scholarship Program is a new program providing $3,000 in scholarships to high school seniors or students enrolled in an accredited college or university. Additional information about the program can be found here.
“The AED.US Scholarship program is an important part of fulfilling our commitment to spreading AED and Sudden Cardiac Arrest awareness,” states Tommy Wilkins, President of Coro Medical. “We created this program to provide opportunities for students to reach their full potential and make a difference in the healthcare industry.”
We asked students to interview an AED user and have them retell a save story or an incident where an AED could have assisted a victim in need. Check out Greg’s video and essay submission!
