Each spring the Western Missouri Medical Center (WMMC) Auxiliary sponsors the Health Care Career Scholarships for students who are pursuing or furthering their education in any healthcare field. Recipients are selected by the WMMC Auxiliary Scholarship Committee based on financial need, scholastic ability, work plans and a demonstrated interest in health care. This year, the WMMC Auxiliary awarded five $1,000 scholarships to five students.

This year’s recipients include: Alexis Borgstadt, 2019 graduate of Concordia High School attending University of Missouri-Columbia for Pre-Medicine; Courtney Campbell, B.S. in Radiologic Technology at University of Central Missouri (UCM); Jennifer Evert, Masters in Legal Studies in Healthcare at Drexel University; Gabrielle Shull, 2019 graduate of Warrensburg High School attending Missouri State University for a Bachelor of Science in Nursing; Sarah Waisner, Bachelor of Science in Nursing at UCM.

As educational expenses are rapidly rising and the demand for health care workers increases, there is a continuing need for additional funds. Donations are encouraged and appreciated by the WMMC Auxiliary to ensure the opportunity to provide additional monetary assistance for our future health care providers. Donations may be made to the WMMC Auxiliary for the Health Care Career Scholarship Fund and sent to WMMC Auxiliary, 403 Burkarth Road, Warrensburg, Missouri, 64093.
