Congratulations to the eight St. Mary’s Hospital nurses who were awarded a total of $30,000 in scholarships in May!
The recipients and the scholarship each received are: Stacey Hamre, Sr. Mary Jean Ryan FSM Nursing; Jessica Krier, Anne Bormett Dardis Scholarship; Stephanie Lehmann, Madison Emergency Physicians Scholarship; Susan Luginbuhl, Auxiliary Nursing Scholarship; Beth Rozak, Leona Grubb Nursing Scholarship; Kara Sedlmeyer, Dr. William and Alice Kopp Scholarship; Sharon Warden, Auxiliary Nursing Scholarship; and Patricia Webster, Nurses Shaping the Future Scholarship.
Through an initiative of St. Mary’s Foundation, $1 Million was raised to build nursing scholarship endowments supporting the advanced education of nurses. To be eligible, nurses must be employed by St. Mary’s Hospital or St. Mary’s Care Center, its skilled nursing facility, and pursuing an advanced degree in nursing. All scholarships were created by generous donors including St. Mary’s Auxiliary, alumni of the hospital’s nursing school (open from 1923-1974) and others who are passionate about the nursing profession.
