The Home Care & Hospice Foundation of Pike County’s Annual $2,000 Nursing Scholarship is awarded to a student or adult pursuing a nursing career.
We are excited to announce that the 2021 recipient of this nursing scholarship was awarded to Aubrey Wendel.
Aubrey is a 2021 graduate of Louisiana High School. She is planning to attend Southern Illinois University of Edwardsville. When asked why she wants to become a nurse: “so I can follow in my grandmother’s footsteps. When I think about being a nurse it makes me happy to know that I can do something I love and have it as a job. Nursing is my passion and I can’t wait to start learning.”
The Home Care & Hospice Foundation knows that our amazing nurses are the backbone of Pike County Hospice and they want to entice more compassionate individuals to pursue nursing and help change the lives of our community members. It’s a very rewarding career, both monetarily and emotionally. We are excited to offer this amazing opportunity to our future Pike County Nurses.
