OKLAHOMA CITY – 180 Medical will give nine young adults $1,000 to help overcome their medical hardships and pursue their goals of higher education. “Our scholarship committee could not pick just five, so we are awarding nine individuals this year,” stated Kieranne Nelms, marketing manager, in a press release. The 180 Medical College Scholarship is for students with spinal cord injuries, spina bifida, transverse myelitis and/or a neurogenic bladder who plan to attend a two-year, four-year or graduate school program full time in the fall. In addition to eligibility documentation, winners submitted brief essays about the importance of college to their goals, lessons learned from a failure or qualities that set them apart. The founder and CEO of 180 Medical, Todd Brown, created the scholarship program. Brown was left paralyzed from the chest down by a motorcross accident in 1994.
