Bethel Community Outreach and College Exodus to Health Professions embraced and recognized the first students ever to participate in their summer enrichment program supported by Loma Linda University. Twenty seven students completed a 50-hour week internship program that enables and exposes local San Bernardino county African American students to experience and knowledge in the medical fields.
The ceremony honoring the students took place at the Boys and Girls Club in San Bernardino. The CEHP program is a comprehensive, three to four year program offered to high school students providing academic preparation and support and exposure to healthcare professions, college applications and college enrollment assistance.
Among the 27 students was Jessica Reliford, who wrote an essay about herself and was selected to join the program. Reliford will be attending Arroyo Valley High School in the fall.
Assistant Superintendent Margaret Hill, Councilman Rikke Van Johnson and Carolyn Tillman were among the crowd to celebrate the future doctors and to support CEHP's first ceremony.
