STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

September 20, 1993

Sunita George, 17, of Millersville, a senior at the Bryn Mawr School.

Accomplishments/Interests: Last summer Sunita visited her native India, where she worked as a volunteer at a cancer center near her family's home in Trivandrum.

Volunteering in the medical field is nothing new to Sunita, as she has been a junior volunteer at North Arundel Hospital in Glen Burnie for three years. In that time she has worked throughout the hospital, making beds, talking with patients and running errands for the nursing staff in addition to working in the hospital office of her father, Dr. George Kurian.

In India, she helped researchers code information about patients with certain types of cancer and helped conduct a survey of substance abuse among medical students.

At the Bryn Mawr School in Baltimore, she plays on the lacrosse team, is a yearbook editor, a school newspaper reporter, a member of the Key Club and the president of a group of more than 20 students who will attend the North Atlantic International Model United Nations meeting at Harvard in December.

Recently entered in Who's Who Among American High School Students, Sunita plans on attending Brown University in Rhode Island and eventually going on to medical school.

Comments: "Someday I'd like to go back [to India] and do something to improve the state. The younger generation needs to take hold and help clean it up.

"When you become a doctor, you enter a stable profession. I think it's really important to help people and I don't mind working long hours."
