PELLA — The Mary Evers Scholarship Committee for the Auxiliary for Pella Regional Health Center has announced scholarship recipients for 2023.

Recipients this year are Grace Bounds, Berklie McKay, Luke Nikkel, Josie Ridley, Ashlyn Bell, Camille Dixon, Rachel Heerema, Nia Hoekstra, Erica Nikkel, Laura Beyer, Madison Ferguson, Melissa Mancl and Amanda Wyatt.

In loving memory of their daughter, Dr. and Mrs. Evers established the Mary Evers Scholarship Fund in 1966. Through the auxiliary, this scholarship assists future nurses to realize their dream. The Mary Evers Nursing Scholarships are available to graduates of Pella or Pella Christian, or who work at Pella Regional and are beginning their nursing degree or for those who are continuing their education.

“Thanks to the contributors of the Mary Evers Scholarship Fund, we are able to support 13 scholarships this year,” said Beth Medberry, Mary Evers Scholarship chair for the auxiliary. “For several years, this scholarship fund has helped many women and men with their school expenses, and many have worked or are working at Pella Regional Health Center.”
