Davidson County, TENNESSEE – According to the statement, the funds come from the HEERF grant the college received earlier this year to support the school and its students.
Officials said that the $10,000 gift will be deposited into each students bank account on Wednesday, November 24, the eve of Thanksgiving.
The Meharry Medical College students found out about the gifts through a video with Meharry President and CEO Dr. James E.K. Hildreth.
Meharry President and CEO Dr. James Hildreth released the following statement:
“Meharrians, I want to tell you that I’m indeed thankful for those of you who work here day in and day out to carry out the Meharry mission. I’m thankful for those who support the College with their resources.
But mostly, I’m thankful for you students and the future of health care that is entrusted to you. That future looks bright. And because of that, students, I’m happy to make a very special announcement today.”
