WesternU students in attendance were thankful for the chance to attend ATC, and for the university raising money for scholarships.
“Receiving scholarships is a big motivating factor to work harder, not only for myself, but for my friends, my family and my community,” said first-year Doctor of Physical Therapy student Monica Mai. “I want to work even harder to be a better student and a better physical therapist. We definitely feel the support from everyone. They all want us to succeed.”
Second-year College of Podiatric Medicine student Bryon McKenna said he put himself through school, so scholarships have been lifesaving.
“They’re the only way I got through school at this point,” he said. “It helps build your confidence when someone else has confidence in you. It helps push you to be a better student.”
McKenna said he appreciates WesternU putting on an event like ATC.
“It speaks volumes for what the university stands for and how they value their students,” he said.
WesternU thanks its Silver Sponsors: AHMC Healthcare, Inc., AmerisourceBergen/Good Neighbor Pharmacy, Sheraton Fairplex, and Wells Fargo Bank.
