The Grinnell Regional Auxiliary presented five local students with $1,000 scholarships to continue their education in a health-related field. Five area women earned the scholarship through a competitive application process.
This year’s scholarship recipients are Alexandra Ferguson, Michelle Hobbs, Mikayla Morrison, Tilly Schmidt, and Abby VanDee.
The auxiliary raises funds in many ways throughout the year. Proceeds from The Glass Gift Box at Grinnell Regional Medical Center fund many programs, patient services, and scholarships. Additional events such as Tag Day, book and jewelry fairs, the Angel Tree during the holidays, and the Kids Zone at Grinnell Chamber’s Friday Fest, all help to support Grinnell Regional Auxiliary and GRMC.
Since 1968, the Grinnell Regional Auxiliary has worked to promote and assist GRMC in providing healthcare services to the area. Grinnell Regional Auxiliary has the distinction of being one of the oldest continuing hospital volunteer organizations in Iowa.
