An NRI neurosurgeon has announced the donation of $1 million to Jackson Community College (JCC) in Washington to establish an endowed scholarship for supporting financially backward students.

The announcement came as a relief for JCC as it prepares to open the renovated Justin Whiting Hall with its new nursing and allied health program instructional areas.

While emphasising on the education, Dr Harish Rawal, a resident of Michigan, admitted that he was excited about beginning of the fulfilment of their commitment to the community.

Lauding the efforts of Dr Rawal, College President Daniel Phelan said, he understands the importance of education and JCCs effort to elevate our technologies and curriculum to enhance student learning.

Rawal, a graduate from BJ Medical College in Ahmedabad, has practiced medicine in Jackson for nearly 30 years now.

The state-of-the-art simulators have been installed that program a robot to simulate many medical conditions that would be seen in an emergency room, the college said in a statement.
