Bothwell Regional Health Center Auxiliary awards three health care scholarships


Sedalia, Missouri, Aug. 3, 2017 – Three $1,500 scholarships were awarded to students in health care by Bothwell Regional Health Center Auxiliary on Friday, July 28. Nursing scholarships were given to Samantha Unkel and Christina Oelrich, and the Bellamy Scholarship, named for longtime auxiliary volunteer Anna Marie Bellamy, went to Erica Kammerich.

Unkel is pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree from Missouri Valley College in Marshall while working at Bothwell Regional Health Center (BRHC). Oelrich is a registered nurse at BRHC and is furthering her education at the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg. She hopes to become a nurse educator. Kammerich, a radiation therapist at BRHC, is working on a bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences at Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas.

The BRHC Auxiliary Scholarship Committee is made up of Sue Heckart, Peggy Curran and Chairwoman Karen Suroff, who worked as a registered nurse at BRHC for many years.

“Congratulations to our scholarship winners,” Suroff said. “The committee wishes them all the best as they continue in their health care careers. It’s our hope that each of them will return to Bothwell and continue to serve our community in the future.”
