Stephens Memorial Hospital Vice President of Development and Community Relations, Barbara Allen announced today that the hospital has been the recipient of a donation from Nate Durgin, of South Paris.
Durgin, a senior at Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School used his senior project to raise money for an important cause, breast cancer awareness. He earned nearly $150 to donate by selling soup to attendees at a local snow fest, and delivered the donation to the hospital on the 28th. Allen shared with him that his was a particularly timely donation, because the 2011 Annual Fund at Stephens Memorial Hospital will be going to support cancer programs and projects at the hospital. Durgin was pleased to be able to help.
After graduation Nate plans to head to the Midwest. He has been accepted to attend the University of Northwestern Ohio in High Performance Motorsports. He wants to get involved in building race cars.
However, when asked if he was headed to North Carolina (home of NASCAR) with his college degree, he said he will probably come back to Maine, it's all about his family for him, and that means the Oxford Hills.
