CCMH Foundation Scholarship deadline approaching


March 30th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Area students interested in working in the medical field have onlya few more days to apply for a scholarship from the Cass County Memorial Hospital Foundation. The application deadline for the $1,000 Elsie and Louie Hansen Memorial Scholarship is Monday, April 2nd, 2012. To be eligible for a scholarship you must be a Cass County high school graduate who is enrolled in, or has been accepted to and will be attending, a college of nursing or medicine leading to an LPN, RN, or MD degree.

The Louie and Elsie Hansen Scholarship was established through the generosity and careful planning of the two life-long Cass County residents, who believed in students receiving a higher education so much, that they bequeathed over 70% of their estate for that purpose, including a gift to the CCMH Foundation.

Under the supervision and guidance of the CCMH Foundation, scholarship opportunities are provided yearly.  Scholarship candidates must have graduated from a Cass County high school and be enrolled in an accredited nursing or medical doctor school. Applications are available on line at or may be picked up from the CCMH Foundation office.
