WHMS Foundation Awards Spring Scholarships

Thursday, June 3, 2021

The West Holt Medical Services Foundation (WHMSF) is pleased to announce the recipients of the Foundation’s spring 2021 scholarships.

Kassidy Hoerle is a 2021 graduate of Chambers High School. She plans to attend Chadron State College, majoring in pre-med. Upon completion of med school, Hoerle hopes to work as a family practice physician in rural Nebraska.

“I believe that by working in rural areas, health care providers are able to develop meaningful relationships with their patients and they are able to give back to rural communities,” she said in her application.

Leighton Mlady graduated from West Hot High School in 2019 and is currently pursuing her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Mount Marty University in Yankton, SD, and plans to eventually become a Family Nurse Practitioner.

“My future plans are to come back to a rural community to start my career,” said Mlady. “It is important to give back to these communities which have given me so much.”

The WHMSF awards 2 $500 Scholarships in the Fall and Spring of each year. Previous winners of the Foundation scholarship are eligible to apply. For more information on eligibility or to apply, visit www.westholtmed.org/scholarships.
