On Saturday, March 26th, a group of hockey players took the ice at Staples Center to raise money for the Ryan M. Sorek Memorial Scholarship. With the LA Kings Arena Announcer Dave Joseph behind one bench and UCLA Center for Prehospital Care Executive Director Todd LeGassick behind the other, 28 hockey players and 2 referees played 3 periods of hockey under the bright lights of an NHL rink.
The Ryan M. Sorek Memorial Scholarship offers a two-part scholarship to a single, private (non-sponsored) student that has been accepted into the upcoming May session of the UCLA Center for Prehospital Care Paramedic Education Program. Upon selection, recipients will be awarded a $2,500 tuition scholarship. After successful completion of the program, recipients will be awarded an additional $1,000 scholarship to cover licensing, accreditation and registry fees as well as a 24-month subscription to JEMS (Journal of Emergency Medical Services) Magazine.
