Opengate’s annual Summer Scholarship was awarded to Larry Awagah, Direct Support Professional (DSP).
Employed at Opengate since November 2012, Larry is currently working at the Gray residence.
He is enrolled in a bilingual nursing program at Eastwick College in New Jersey with an anticipated graduation date of April 2017. At that time, he will be eligible to take the Licensed Practical Nurse exam.
Larry believes his degree will present him with an opportunity to not only enhance his career but help Opengate as well.
He has an excellent understanding of the role of the Opengate Nurse since he has worked in Frankel, our medically frail house, and he hopes to utilize his newly acquired skills to continue to enrich the lives of the individuals we serve.
Opengate wishes Larry the best of luck in his pursuit of an LPN license.
