Halilovic Secures Scholarship

Halilovic Secures Scholarship

Haris Halilovic, South Tech Ambassador and Health Sciences senior from Lindbergh, recently accepted a $285 scholarship from Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center. Each year, the South Tech Ambassador team hosts a blood drive with Mississippi Valley and shares scholarships with their partners. Halilovic earned this honor based on his outstanding academic performance in his Tech major, his school citizenship, and his commitment to the Ambassador program.

Halilovic joined South Tech his junior year, due in part to the prompting of his mother who had formerly worked for the school. He followed through and chose the Health Sciences program based on his desire to help others and his love of interacting with people. Halilovic’s experience at Tech has helped him plan a bright, solid plan for his future. He is already enrolled at Meramec where he plans to use his A+ scholarship funds to complete his first two years of college. He hopes to then gain employment locally before pursuing his BSN because so many hospitals now offer tuition benefits. Eventually, he would like to pursue further education and become a nurse practitioner.

Of his clinical experiences at St. Anthony’s and Delmar Gardens, Halilovic felt they helped him discover areas of medical care that fit his talents best. He enjoyed working with the Alzheimer’s patients at Delmar, but also loved the challenge of having new patients each day at St. Anthony’s. In both facilities, he said “I felt like I made the day a little better for them.” Congratulations Haris, we are sure your patients would agree!
