Area students awarded nursing scholarships
Tri-County Health Care Foundation awarded four $2,500 scholarships to area nursing students. The recent recipients are:
• Stephanie Cichy, M-State, Wadena
• Stephanie Hendrickx, St. Cloud State University
• Clara Hoss, M-State, Wadena
• Dustin Peterson, M-State, Wadena
A total of $10,000 in scholarships was distributed to deserving students in an accredited nursing program. Recipients are chosen using a blind selection process from the eligibility criteria established. The applicant should have residential ties to the Tri-County Health Care service area in Ottertail, Todd and Wadena counties.
The family of Gary and Benda Davis, of Wadena, and the Tri-County Health Care governing Board established the Davis Family Nursing Scholarship in 2010 to give back to the community, inspire others to pay it forward and encourage qualified individuals to pursue a healthcare career in nursing.
