Donations Ensure All Students in Four Local Districts Can Enjoy Schools’ Athletic Competitions

SEPTEMBER 22, 2022 - MT. STERLING, KY - Sterling Health Care (SHC) recently emboldened its commitment to providing equal opportunities for under-served families by donating a total of $11,000 to four local school districts in the Gateway Region. The purpose of the donations was to cover the expense of game-day admission for all students to school athletic competitions, eliminating financial concerns for some while also providing equal enjoyment opportunities for all.

Sterling Health Care (SHC) presented a check for $5,000 to the Montgomery County School District to cover costs for student admission to the school’s athletic competitions during the 2022-2023 school year. Attending the check presentation, from left, was Kem Spencer, SHC Advanced Practice Nurse Practitioner; Jessica Stigall, SHC School-Based Health Program Coordinator; Austin Maples, MCSD Athletic Director; Dr. Matt Thompson, MCSD Superintendent; and MinDee Hudson, SHC Chief Operations Officer.

“Years spent in school are certainly about education and learning but they’re also a special time for creating great memories with friends,” said Tina Bryant, SHC Chief Executive Officer. “We’re very thankful for the opportunities these schools afford to us through our School-Based Health Program and feel this is a way we can do more to enrich the health and total well-being of all students during this important time in their lives.”

School districts receiving the donations were Montgomery, Bourbon, Powell and Nicholas counties, all participants in the SHC School-Based Health Program. This is the second consecutive year these donations have been provided by SHC to cover these expenses.

“We value our partnerships with each of these school districts a great deal and look forward to continuing this program in the future,” Bryant added.

“We love our partnership with Sterling Health,” stated Wendy Mahanna, Athletic Director for the Bourbon County School District. “They not only help provide physicals for our student athletes, but have generously donated to allow our students to attend athletic events for free. We have seen larger student attendance which helps improve our school culture and Colonel Pride!”

“We are extremely grateful for the generosity of Sterling Health,” added Doug Brewer, Athletic Director for Powell County Schools. “Their donation allows so many of our students to be able to attend our sporting events, who otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity.”
