The National Society of High School Scholars teamed up with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and ALSAC to bring a group of our members to the St. Jude campus in Memphis, Tennessee, for a member event designed specifically to explore all aspects of careers in healthcare.
At 211 degrees, water is hot. At 212 degrees, it boils, and with boiling water comes steam, and with steam, you can power a train. One extra degree makes all the difference! Since its inception, ALSAC SJCRH has always embraced the extra degree, going above and beyond with the patient family experience, medical research, sharing information, volunteer/donor experience, and employee experience.
Participating members had an opportunity to visit the St. Jude campus and learn about St. Jude's history, leadership, career paths at ALSAC SJCRH, and the extra effort it takes to be truly successful. Students heard from St. Jude Faculty, ALSAC Fundraising Staff, and the ALSAC Global team. They enjoyed a walking tour of the hospital campus, participated in a team event, and gained insights on career paths and the research hospital's service model. At the end of the event, all NSHSS Members were recognized on stage during the Member Recognition Ceremony and received an honor medallion for academic excellence!
