CMS Students Spread Kindness to St. Anthony

Since February, the middle school students have all worked together to spread kindness in Carroll through the BLOHMing with Kindness Project.

The project was in conjunction with the annual kindness campaign from the Carroll High School Foundation.

Mrs. Martin’s (the 7th graders) class wanted to help provide comfort to children who are patients at St. Anthony Regional Hospital. The students decided to help create tie blankets that could be given to children throughout various departments at St. Anthony.

 Student Interns Summer 2024

The St. Anthony summer internship will kick off on June 10th with 26 interns who will be working in clinical and non-clinical areas throughout the hospital. Interns are exploring and preparing for careers in nursing, rehab services, surgery, dietetics, radiology, oncology, laboratory, IT, and healthcare administration.

Interns can fill a work role in a designated unit, with opportunities to explore and observe in other clinical areas of interest. 

Please give these interns a warm welcome when you see them around St. Anthony!

By becoming aware of our thinking and attitude about change, we are in a better position to embrace its possibilities. Here are some tips to foster a healthy change attitude in yourself and others.

  1. Pause and reflect on the quality of your thinking
  2. Check in with your mood to see how you are feeling
  3. Recognize that many new ideas look strange or unachievable at first
  4. Understand the effects and implications of change
