The Waldeck Nursing Scholarship enters its ninth year this semester. Accordingly, we congratulate Rebekah Nordstrom on being chosen as this year’s recipient. Rebekah graduated from Mesa Valley Community School in their Class of 2018. We wish her the best as she moves on to college.
In 2010, Ellen Jo Waldeck established a legacy fund in 2010 which provides nursing scholarships at Colorado Mesa University (CMU). In greater detail, these ‘last dollar’ scholarships cover tuition and fees, room and board, and also books and supplies. Indeed, these scholarships are four-year, full-ride scholarships for CMU’s nursing program.
Nursing can be a challenging career. So, it is the intention of the Waldeck Scholarship to support new nurses as they start out in their studies.
