Goshen Health Donates Lab Coats to Local Students

February 21, 2017

GOSHEN, Ind. – Randy Christophel, president and CEO, Goshen Health, recently visited with students at Milford School to distribute lab coats for their Project Lead The Way curriculum which focuses on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs. In total, 90 coats were distributed to students at Milford School, Wawasee Middle School and New Paris Elementary School.

“We are thrilled to support the students as they work to fine-tune their critical thinking skills and develop into young leaders,” shared Christophel. “What a wonderful opportunity for us to provide school resources that help them study the medical field and learn about career opportunities in the healthcare industry!”

Christophel met with nearly 30 eighth grade students at Milford School on Monday morning to distribute the lab coats and answer questions. Students were interested in his educational background, how Goshen Health manages technology and the cost of equipment. Many asked for advice, including how they can best position themselves for future success.

“I was extremely impressed with the students. They are bright, talented young women and men,” Christophel said. “The school leadership is doing a wonderful job to prepare our children for the future.”

Milford School follows the Gateway curriculum designed by Project Lead The Way. This program includes engineering and robotics to challenge, inspire and offer schools variety and flexibility. Students get rigorous and relevant experiences through activity-, project- and problem-based learning.
