Posted on August 4, 2017

Lourdes Foundation and Lourdes Auxiliary have awarded 7 scholarships to local students pursuing undergraduate degrees a healthcare related field.

Recipients were selected using a number of criteria including the applicant’s academic achievement, financial need and volunteerism. The Scholarship Program was created to encourage exceptional students to pursue a career in the health care industry, as well as ease their personal financial burden.

Six recipients were awarded $1,500 and one recipient will receive the $500 Sandbank-Stanke Memorial Nursing Scholarship, which is funded by the Tensmeyer Family of Wenatchee, WA.

“Each year we have the opportunity to learn about local students who are pursuing their dreams and working toward building a healthier community. At Lourdes, we share their mission and are pleased to award these scholarships,” said Wendee Bodnar, Lourdes Foundation Specialist.

Recipients will be formally recognized at the Scholarship Luncheon last month. At the Luncheon, students were acknowledged and given the opportunity to speak about their future educational goals and how they will utilize the scholarship to better their future.
