Two nursing students at Lakeshore Technical College have been awarded scholarships by the Wisconsin League for Nursing.
Pietje Markus received a $2,000 Bader Philanthropies, Inc. Gerontology Pre-Licensure Scholarship.
Courtney Hunn received a $1,000 Pre-Licensure Associate Degree Nursing Deaconess Scholarship.
Markus and Hunn are among 19 recipients from around the state.
The scholarships were issued based on program of study, interest in gerontology and mental health specialties, future nurse educators, and general nursing focus.
Markus is a nursing-associate degree program student and earned her nursing assistant technical diploma at LTC in 2005.
Hunn meanwhile is a Whitelaw resident who is also a nursing-associate degree student.
She anticipates graduating in May 2023.
