The Medical, Educational and Development (MED) Foundation of Mercer Health recently awarded 13 scholarships, for a total of $13,000, to local students furthering their education in a medical field after their high school graduation.  Scholarships were awarded to at least one student from each of the six schools in Mercer County. 

Mindy Kremer, Senior Director of Development, Marketing and Community Relations at Mercer Health states, “We have been providing scholarships since 1992.  The total amount awarded over those years has reached $226,700 to 202 recipients.  Each year we hold a golf outing, the Esmonde-Homan Memorial Golf Outing, with its proceeds directly funding our scholarship program.  We are honored that we can provide these scholarships to local students and are excited about their future as healthcare providers, hopefully coming back to serve our local community.”

Recipients include: Celina – Hana Grabow, Mallory McMurray and Nicole Crites; Coldwater – Anna Jenkins, Leanna Wolters and Megan Frilling; Ft. Recovery – Caitlyn Huelskamp, Kirsten Jutte, Megan Hipple and Corinne Stone; Marion Local – Hannah Moeller; and St. Henry – Alyssa Siefring and Evan Lefeld.
