The Hospital Auxiliary of Hilton Head Regional Healthcare recently presented $20,000 in nursing scholarships to USCB. These scholarships are important in attracting new students and helping to address the shortage of nurses in the Lowcountry. Over the past 30 years, the Auxiliary has donated more than $850,000 in scholarships through proceeds from its annual Hospital Auxiliary Invitational Golf Tournament held in late November at Harbour Town Golf Links and Wexford Golf Club.
