Since 1989, Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation has awarded 359 health career scholarships amounting to $224,641. These scholarships have helped area students become physicians, paramedics, radiology technicians, registered nurses, pharmacists, physical therapists and other health professionals. Upon graduation, many of these professionals have remained in Kearney starting their careers at Good Samaritan. Recipients must be currently enrolled or accepted in an accredited program of a recognized health career and must be permanent residents or students attending schools in the Good Samaritan primary or secondary service county area.

These scholarships are made possible by many generous donors: colleagues and friends of LeRoy Rheault established an endowed health career scholarship in 1987; Don and Delores Williams created an endowed health career scholarship in 1992; Dr. and Mrs. H.R. Walker created an endowed health career scholarship in 1997; Shirley Chavanu’s family and friends created a nursing scholarship in her honor in 1999; Nelda Haag created an endowed scholarship in memory of her husband in 2005; George and Jana Harms established the Harms Family Endowed Scholarship in 2008; family and friends created the Jim and Marcia Elder Family Endowed Radiology Scholarship in memory of Jim Elder in 2011; the Professional Development Council Scholarships were established in 2012 by the Professional Development Council (PDC) Good Samaritan Hospital; the Ron & Carol Cope Endowed Healthcare Scholarship Fund was established in 2015. Additional donations to the CHI Health Good Samaritan Foundation Scholarship Fund make it possible to award health career scholarships.

Congratulations to our 2018 scholarship recipients and warm thanks to our many charitable donors who make these scholarships possible.
