Ringgold graduate Moriah Mathies spent the summer working as a student nurse intern at Monongahela Valley Hospital's 7-E wing, which primarily cares for cancer patients. Miss Mathies returned to Muskingum University in Ohio to finish her senior year and encouraged her soccer team to raise funds for MVH's Charles L. and Rose Sweeney Melenyzer Pavilion and Regional Cancer Center this past fall. "We're a small college so we wanted to donate to a smaller hospital and I loved my experience at Mon Valley, I learned so much," said the Finleyville native who expects to graduate in May with her bachelor of science in nursing. Her 22 teammates agreed and organized a kids' camp, sold pink shirts, made bracelets and collected donations. On behalf of the team and Coach Mary Beth Caudill, Miss Mathies (shown, left) recently presented a $300 check to Director of Fund Development Melissa Marion (right) at Monongahela Valley Hospital.
