The Istrouma Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America honored Medical Explorer Post 940, chartered by North Oaks Health System, for outstanding service to youth, hospital officials said.
The North Oaks Post gives students ages 14-20 an opportunity to study health care careers through a career fair, meetings with medical professionals and direct observation during winter and spring school breaks.
During the 2011-2012 school year, the Post attracted 54 Explorers from Southeastern Louisiana University and 12 Livingston, St. Helena, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa and Washington parish high school students.
The 2012-2013 year will start in October 2012 with a meeting for newcomers. For more information, call North Oaks Volunteer Services at (985) 230-6811.
