2018/2019 School Year Winners
Encore Physical Therapy of Corvallis & Albany recently expanded their student recognition program and awarded 7 new scholarships to local high school seniors in the Albany, Corvallis and Philomath school districts. This was an increase from the 4 given out the previous year. As long time supporters of the Willamette Valley community, these scholarships were awarded to local high school seniors looking to continue on to higher education. The scholarship recipients were recognized for being well-rounded seniors with either a strong background in school athletics and/or notable participation in S.T.E.A.M based programs and activities.
In the Fall of 2018 we also expanded the program to involve job shadowing for students interested in a career in physical therapy and/or the medical field, presentations in the classroom, speaking to athletics groups/clubs, and any other areas where we can be of use or provide assistance.
