OCTC Students Volunteer and Get Additional Classroom Materials

Owensboro Community amp; Technical Colleges (OCTC) Theresa Hall, Nursing Faculty and Tabitha Drane, Simulation Specialist took students on a road trip to volunteer with Supplies Over Seas (SOS). The third semester nursing students traveled to Louisville for the third semester in a row to help with SOS a proud to partner with Owensboro Health. SOS supports medical education, when a nursing instructor brings students to SOS to volunteer, they are allowed to take applicable materials, unable to be used in the field, back to their classroom. This is a tremendous help on diminishing educational budgets and it allows the students to have more opportunity to practice with real materials before they graduate. The OCTC group selected 402 pounds of expired materials from SOS to take back to the classroom.
