Mary Evers Nursing Scholarship
Mary Evers was the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Alvin (Betty) Evers. All her life she wanted to be a nurse. After graduating from Pella High School in 1960, she attended Central College for one year and then enrolled in Broadlawns School of Nursing in Des Moines. In her second year of training, she was killed in a car accident.
In loving memory of Mary, Dr. and Mrs. Evers established the Mary Evers Scholarship Fund in 1966. Through the Auxiliary, this scholarship assists future nurses to realize their dream.
For several decades, this scholarship fund has helped more than 100 women and men with their school expenses, and many have worked or are working at Pella Regional Health Center.
Applicants must either be employed by Pella Regional Health Center or be a graduate or part of the 2021 graduating class of the Pella Community School District or Pella Christian School District. The scholarship is awarded annually in the spring. Applications must be completed online.
