Mary Evers Scholarship Recipients for 2018

PELLA, Iowa— The Mary Evers Scholarship Committee for the Auxiliary for Pella Regional Health Center has selected the following scholarship recipients for 2018: Grace Bokhoven, Ashlee Carlson, Rachel Freesman, Ashley Hafner, Sophie Howerzyl, Sheryl Luce, Regan Nelson, Chelsea Payne, Stephanie Rennich, and Josie Te Grotenhuis.

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 in the school districts of Pella or Pella Christian or who work at Pella Regional and are beginning their nursing degree or for those who are continuing their education.

“For several decades, this scholarship fund has helped many women and men with their school expenses, and many have worked or are working at Pella Regional Health Center,” said Beth Medberry, Mary Evers Scholarship Chair for the Auxiliary.
