Established in 1969 with funds from the estates of Dr. Roy K. Keech and his wife Bess, the scholarship extends support to nursing students, whose field will enable them to continue to impact the world around them. Dr. and Mrs. Keech’s mission through this funding is to “make available to worthy young people the advantage of an education in nursing for their benefit -- in order that they will be in a better position not only to help themselves, but to extend their influence to others.”
Mount Mercy is pleased to announce the recipients of the Keech Scholarship Fund for 2012-13.
This year a total of $25,000 will be awarded to Mount Mercy nursing students. Since the establishment of the fund in 1969, over $1.8 million has been awarded to more than 500 nursing students at Mount Mercy.
