The Riverside Health Foundation has awarded $10,000 in scholarships to nine Waupaca-area residents who plan to pursue careers in healthcare. Jordan Bestul of Manawa is one of the recipients.
“By awarding these scholarships, we help support health care education for our future providers and honor the legacy of those who have served our community,” said Steve Huhta, president of the Riverside Health Foundation. “We are proud of these hard-working students as they continue their education and pursue careers in healthcare.”
The board administers three scholarship funds that were established to honor Dr. Marshall and Mary Boudry; Isabelle Rowe; and Nancy B. Salan.
