Jasmine Coleman, Montrose, a student at Elk Lake School, won the 2006 Health Careers Week local essay contest with a submission that focused on choosing physical therapy as making “An Investment in Life.”
Jasmine’s essay was selected from submissions from five schools in the Northern Tier Region.
The essay contest, co-sponsored by the Northern Tier Regional Planning and Development Commission and the Pennsylvania Center for Health Careers, aimed at raising youth awareness of Pennsylvania’s high-demand, rewarding health care careers and career benefits like opportunity for advancement and competitive wages.
Jasmine wrote a two-page essay on why choosing a health career in physical therapy is an Investment in Life because, “When I first thought of a physical therapist I thought of someone who just helps people who are injured, but now that I’ve done research I found that there is more to it than just that. When I was doing my research I found that a physical therapist also helps people who are disabled by illnesses, accidents, or develop mental disabilities. They also provide many services to the community.”
Jasmine will receive a certificate from Governor Edward G. Rendell and the Pennsylvania Center for Health Careers, and has the chance to be one of five regional winners, each of whom will be awarded $100. Of the five regional winners, one will be selected statewide winner and awarded $400.
