Mrs. Betty Hatcher was so impressed when she toured the North Central Missouri College’s Nursing and Health Sciences program; she knew one day she would create a scholarship to help NCMC students. Mrs. Hatcher’s dream is now a reality with her recent Gifts in Action to create the Edward & Betty Hatcher Scholarship. The Edward & Betty Hatcher Scholarship will assist a Milan C-II or Grundy R-V graduate pursuing a degree/certificate at North Central Missouri College. The first award of this scholarship will be fall of 2021.

The NCMC Foundation is so grateful that Mrs. Hatcher made her dream come true to honor her and her late husband by creating an endowed scholarship,” commented NCMC Director of Development Alicia Endicott. “Mrs. Hatcher’s daughters graduated from Milan and Mr. Hatcher from Galt, therefore she wanted to help graduates from those high schools who attend NCMC.”

Establishing a named scholarship in honor of a family member or memory of a special friend is a wonderful way to leave a legacy. Endowed scholarships can be awarded in accordance with the donor’s wishes. Donors who have benefited from scholarships themselves can “pay it forward” by establishing a named scholarship with their Gifts in Action. Every donation to Gifts in Action will make a difference in the lives of NCMC students and help the leaders of tomorrow achieve their higher educational goals.

The NCMC Foundation is an IRS approved 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. All contributions toward the Campaign are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law. If you would like to learn more about the NCMC Foundation, how to start or donate to an existing NCMC Foundation Scholarship, contact Alicia Endicott at (660)357-6403; [email protected] or visit; Gifts in Action.
