CCHCS launches second annual scrubs drive for Stockton school

California Correctional Health Care Services (CCHCS) has launched its second annual scrubs drive for the new Health Careers Academy (HCA) in Stockton. 

The HCA provides a rigorous college prep curriculum for high school students. Many had never considered careers in health care or even struggled with graduating high school at all. The uniform at HCA is medical scrubs; however, many of the students face extreme economic hardship and some students are even homeless. 

Last year, CCHCS was able to provide thousands of new and gently new scrubs as well as various other medically related items through collections from staff all across the state! The students were so appreciative and thankful for all the support and cool new scrubs.

“I want zero tolerance on it. We provide healthy meals for them and they get out of context,” Holquin said.

When students disrespect Holquin she responds calmly.

“I take it in calmly and listen to what the students say but if they don’t listen we call campus safety which has had to happen before.”

Holquin doesn’t like her coworkers feeling unsafe because of students showing disrespect towards her and her workers.

“I don’t want my ladies to be scared to serve students. I do have one lady who was scared for her life. I don’t find that fair when we serve students.”
