TCHC Foundation awards Marquardt-Prindle Scholarship

The Tri-County Health Care Foundation awarded a $2,000 scholarship to Matt Cary of Wadena. Cary is an emergency department nurse at Tri-County Health Care and is pursuing a Doctor of Nursing Practice at the College of St. Scholastica.

The Bernadine Marquardt and Margaret Prindle Scholarship is awarded annually to one Tri-County Health Care employee. The scholarship was established to encourage Tri-County Health Care employees to fulfill their educational goals. Eligibility is not limited to clinical studies; all programs and degree levels are applicable.

The scholarship was established in 2010 as an endowment memorial from long-time Tri-County Hospital employees and sisters Marquardt and Prindle. Marquardt worked as a licensed practical nurse at Tri-County Hospital for 46 years; she retired in 1986. Prindle retired from Tri-County Hospital in 1991 after 48 years of service to the dietary department.
