Mary Evers Scholarship Recipients for 2015

PELLA, Iowa— The Mary Evers Scholarship Committee for the Auxiliary for Pella Regional Health Center has selected the following scholarship recipients for 2015: Larissa Downs, Stephanie Rennich, Alyssa Starkey and Emily Van Gorp.

In loving memory of their daughter, Dr. and Mrs. Evers established the Mary Evers Scholarship Fund in 1966. Through the Auxiliary, this scholarship assists future nurses to realize their dream. The Mary Evers Nursing Scholarships are available to those who are beginning their nursing degree or for those who are continuing their education.

“The Mary Evers scholarship fund has helped so many with their school expenses and that’s an exciting thing to be part of, especially when so many of the recipients end up working in our local community,” said Vivian Rippentrop, Committee Chair for the Auxiliary.
