Tuesday, May 30, 2023

The West Holt Medical Services Foundation (WHMSF) is pleased to announce the recipients of the Foundation’s spring 2023 scholarships.

Kassidy Hoerle is a 2021 graduate of Chambers High School. She currently attends Chadron State College, majoring in human biology with a pre-med emphasis. She plans to finish her undergraduate degree at the University of Nebraska-Kearney and attend med school. 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.

Olivia Micheel is a 2023 graduate of School House Rock: An Acton Academy in Bassett. She plans to attend Northeast community college in Norfolk to pursue her nursing degree. Once she completes her degree, Micheel hopes to return to Holt/Rock County to work in a local hospital.

The WHMSF awards two $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.
