Merrill Lynch Executives Help Health Campaign

09/14/2001

Raymond McGovern and Gregory Hurst, both vice presidents with Merrill Lynch in Fort Walton Beach, are putting their company's corporate matching program to work on behalf of the Okaloosa-Walton Community College Health Technology Endowment Campaign. McGovern, who is a director with the OWCC Foundation board, and Hurst, have combined forces with a three-year pledge of $10,000 for the college's new Registered Nursing and health studies program. Merrill Lynch will match the donation.

The only way to begin a new instructional program such as health technology at OWCC is with private funds. Private donations allow OWCC to be eligible for state matching funds. Interest income from the Health Technology Endowment will support the college's new Registered Nursing program and future programs in Dental Assisting and other health fields. To date, community and corporate support have helped raise more than two-thirds of the $3 million necessary for the project and another $650,000 is needed to complete the endowment. For information, contact the OWCC Foundation at (850) 729-5357 or visit www.owcc.cc.fl.us/healthtech.
