Melissa Yoakum receives NCMC Foundation Allied Health Maude Ryan Nursing Scholarship

Prior to the Dr. Albert & Vera Cross Hall 10th anniversary open house, $45,000 in Allied Health scholarships were announced by the North Central Missouri College Foundation.  Mr. Mitch Holder, NCMC Dean of Instruction, made the announcements with scholarship donors, student recipients, and guests in attendance.  Forty-four scholarships were announced with award amounts ranging from $5000 to $300 awarded to 34 recipients. 

Mrs. Maude Ryan was a former nursing instructor at Trenton Junior College. Education was very important to her and her husband, Lelan Ryan and being able to help others achieve their goal.  The Maude Ryan Memorial Nursing Scholarship was first awarded in 2002 and is given to the top ADN student.  The recipient of the Maude Ryan Nursing Scholarship in the amount of $5000 is Melissa Yoakum from Edina, MO.

All NCMC Foundation Allied Health Scholarship recipients are to be full-time students or enrolled in all available hours and required to submit a thank you letter to be provided to the scholarship donor.  Many of the scholarships are renewable for a second semester provided that the recipient maintains full-time enrollment and achieves at 2.5 GPA.
