Human Arc Names Jermaine Clark Recipient of College Scholarship

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - September 21, 2009) - Human Arc, a leader in reimbursement and other innovative revenue enhancement services for hospitals and health plans, has named Jermaine Clark of Cleveland as the third recipient of its ongoing Human Arc Scholarship Award. The program is for Northeast Ohio high school seniors who have demonstrated singular scholastic achievement, are intent on pursuing college education, and have clear need for financial assistance to do that. The program awards $1,000 annually in paid college tuition for four years, plus a summer work internship at the company.

Jermaine Clark is a 2009 graduate of John Hay Early College High School with an overall 4.79 grade point average. He excelled in his school's Student Ambassadors program, served on the school newspaper, and worked as an assistant to attorneys at Tucker, Ellis & West LLC. In addition, Jermaine was active in the Cleveland Water Department's community-oriented Youth Opportunities Unlimited. He is now enrolled at Cleveland State University with goals to become an attorney and ultimately a judge.

The Human Arc scholarship award program is the brainchild of employee Wanda Thomas who for years has helped area high school students with their scholarship applications. After seeing so many deserving students face difficulties raising funds for college, Ms. Thomas proposed the program to Human Arc President and Chief Operating Officer Jeffrey L. Markle as a way the company could expand its diverse community outreach initiatives to help scholastic achievers.

"Wanda's work exemplifies a core Human Arc value -- service to our communities," stated Markle. "We encourage employees to do outreach as a part of their individual annual objectives. The scholarship program that Wanda developed allows us to have a real impact in developing tomorrow's leaders. Human Arc congratulates Jermaine Clark on his achievements. We're proud to help him turn his aspirations into realities."
