HURON —Through the generosity of a family with a legacy of service to local health care, three Huron seniors are pursuing degrees in high-need health care career areas.
A total of $30,000 was recently awarded from the Dr. Paul & Carol Hohm Scholarship Endowment and the Dr. Paul and Carol Hohm Healthcare Fund at the South Dakota Community Foundation (SDCF).
The endowment, which was established with the HRMC Foundation in 2006, honors the late Dr. Paul Hohm and his wife, Carol. It was designed to ensure that the area has highly trained medical professionals to meet the needs of our community.
This year, Madelynn Lord and Riley Myers, who are pursuing Medical Lab Technology degrees at Mitchell Technical College, have been awarded scholarships from this fund.
The Dr. Paul and Carol Hohm Healthcare Fund was established at SDCF in 2018 by their daughter, Marilyn Hoyt, and sons, Dr. Robert Hohm and Dr. Richard Hohm.
Gracie Culver, who is enrolling in the Radiologic Technology program at Mitchell Technical College, has received the 2022 scholarship award.
HRMC Foundation scholarship applications are accepted each year from January 1 until the end of April.
