Honduras Mission Trip Reflections by Local Scholarship Recipient

August 7th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

Christopher Ackerman, recipient of the Ted A. Wolfe Physician Scholarship, administered by the Western Maryland Health System Foundation, recently completed a Medical Mission trip to Honduras and has shared this reflection of the experience. The Ted A. Wolfe Physician Scholarship represents the legacy of a man who grew up in Cumberland and dedicated a portion of his estate to support “medical services and educational expenses for persons in Allegany County in need of financial assistance.” The scholarship program fulfills Mr. Wolfe’s wishes exactly, while funding medical school education for an outstanding local student. His generosity and foresight are a gift to our community by bringing bright young physicians, like Christopher, back to practice in Allegany County.
