The members of the Regional Medical Center's Junior Volunteer program recently named Morgan Blanchard the 2018 Junior Volunteer of the Year.

“I like interacting with different people and helping my community,” said Blanchard. “I want to be a nurse practitioner, so volunteering at the hospital is good experience.”

Blanchard, who lives in Orangeburg, joined RMC’s Auxiliary Junior Volunteer program this year and has served more than 100 hours at RMC.

Blanchard is a rising senior at Orangeburg Consolidated School District 5’s High School for Health Professions in Orangeburg.

She is a part of the Orangeburg-Wilkinson High School varsity volleyball team. She is a 2018 delegate for Palmetto Girls’ State.
