She didn’t tell her husband where she was going. But today, Ramona-resident Eva Orellana is the winner of California Medical College’s $10,000 full tuition Grand Prize. The prize, based on a random drawing, entitles her to full tuition to the new college which has an intensive six-month medical technical training program. In addition to the tuition prize, Ms. Orellana wins all her books, scrubs, and medical kit. Four additional prizes of $1,000 tuition discounts were also announced.
“I told my husband I was ‘going to a class’ but he did not know what kind,” Eva said with a smile, “I never win anything! I wanted to get started in a medical career so this is a dream come true. I am so thrilled!”
Eva, a beautician in Ramona, wanted to get into a nursing program at Palomar Community College. “But the waiting list is too long,” she said, “So a friend told me about California Medical College and I decided to check it out. Now I am getting started on my medical career in July. No more waiting lists!”
Eva is married to her husband Kenneth and has a teenage daughter Alexis (16).
