Supporting local students pursuing an education in healthcare fields
Clara Barton Foundation has several named Scholarship Endowments supported by generous donors. An endowment is a restriction on the use of donated funds. Endowment differs from regular donations in that the money creates a forever fund that is never spent. However, the earnings on the investment help the donor’s chosen cause now as well as far into the future, remembering the honored person’s legacy every time a portion of the fund’s balance is paid out.
Jonathan Witt Scholarship
Supports students planning to pursue a health care professional curriculum. The Jonathan Witt Scholarship is actually the oldest scholarship offered, having been continually awarded since the formation of the Hospital Auxiliary organization in the 1950’s. The auxiliary members voted to rename the scholarship in 2004 and established an endowment with the Foundation in honor of Jonathan Witt, son of Dr. Dan and Sandi Witt.
Sadie Stalcup Scholarship
Supports students planning to pursue a health care professional curriculum. This is a second scholarship which was sponsored originally by the Hospital Auxiliary and established as endowment with Clara Barton Foundation. The scholarship is named in honor of Sadie Stalcup, a long time nurse at Clara Barton Hospital.
Verda Lane Nursing Scholarship
Supports students admitted to a nursing program, either LPN, RN, or BSN. Verda Lane scholarship was made possible through an endowment established by her family in honor of her years of dedicated nursing service.
Dr. Robert Moore Scholarship
Supports employees of Clara Barton Hospital with continuing medical education. Dr. Robert Moore scholarship was established at the request of the late Dr. Moore’s family. Dr. Moore dedicated most of his professional life to serving the patients of Clara Barton Hospital, formerly known as Hoisington Lutheran Hospital.
