Winneshiek Medical Center Auxiliary awards scholarships to local students

Posted: April 25, 2019

The Winneshiek Medical Center Auxiliary recently awarded scholarships to seven local students pursuing health care professions at its annual spring brunch.

Receiving Auxiliary scholarships were Kasey Buchheit, NICC for Nursing; Marianne Stalberger, Chamberlain University for her Bachelor of Science in Nursing; Brooke Herold, Allen College for Nursing; Augusta Casterton, University of Minnesota – Rochester for Echocardiography; Brandi Hageman, University of Iowa for her Doctor of Pharmacy; and Payton Stock, University of Northern Iowa for Athletic Training.

This year, an individual wanted to honor long-time Decorah Clinic nurse, Mary Meyer, RN, by offering a scholarship in her name to a deserving student entering the nursing field. Kaleb Michel, attending Hawkeye Community College for Nursing, received this one-time scholarship.

The Winneshiek Medical Center Auxiliary offers their annual Health Career Scholarship to residents of Winneshiek County pursuing a health care profession. The applicant must be accepted into an accredited health career program to be eligible. Proceeds from the Auxiliary’s bakeless bake sale, spring brunch and holiday bake sale went toward the 2018 scholarship fund.
