Divine Savior Healthcare is pleased to announce 2012 scholarship recipients!
Each year, Divine Savior Healthcare’s Medical Staff Scholarship recognizes outstanding seniors who have attained academic excellence and possess leadership qualities as exhibited through their involvement in community and extracurricular activities.
Additionally, the Partners of Divine Savior Healthcare grant annual scholarships to exceptional students seeking a degree in the healthcare field.
Mitchell Hobbins and Jennifer Schroeder, both of Wisconsin Dells, each received $1,000 for the Medical Staff award scholarship.
This year’s recipients of the two $1500 award scholarships from the Partners of Divine Savior are Atalie Mittelstedt of Westfield High School and Michelle Cavanaugh of Adams/Friendship High School.
Mitchell Hobbins, son of Margaret and Steve Rodenkirch of Wisconsin Dells, will be attending the University of Wisconsin- Madison this fall to begin studies toward a degree in biomedical engineering. While maintaining a 3.8 grade-point average and making the Honor Roll throughout high school, Mitchell has been involved in many activities, including Badger Boys State, football and volunteering at Rocky Arbor State Park. His hope is to pursue a Master’s or Ph.D. in his field in order to develop better operating prosthetics and artificial organs.
Jennifer Schroeder is the daughter of Tynna Schroeder of Wisconsin Dells. She will be attending either the University of Wisconsin- Madison or Eau Claire this fall to study chemistry and biology. Jennifer has been active in her school where she is involved in cheerleading, swimming, forensics, student mentoring and yearbook. She also volunteers at St. Cecilia’s and the Golden Living Nursing Facility, all while maintaining a 3.8 grade point average. She plans to continue on the medical school following her undergraduate education.
Atalie Mittelsted, recipient of the Partners of Divine Savior Healthcare scholarship, plans to pursue a nursing career and has enrolled for the fall semester at the University of Wisconsin- Oshkosh. At Westfield High School, Atalie participated in volleyball, basketball, softball and band as well as involvement with the forensics team her freshman year, homecoming activities and prom activities. In addition, she has been active within the community volunteering for fund raisers, Bowling for the Hungry, and is active in her church. Atalie says her experience volunteering within the community “enables (her) so much more to be accomplished to make that community better”. She says it has also made her realize how much she enjoys helping others.
Michelle Cavanaugh, also a Partner’s scholarship recipient, is interested in pursuing a career in Nursing. She is currently enrolled for the 2012 fall semester at Viterbo University. At Adams/Friendship High School she is a member of Health Occupation Students of America, Mathletes, Community Learning Center Teacher’s Assistant and Distributive Education Clubs of America. Michelle also participates in volleyball and softball. In her community, Michelle volunteers at Grand Marsh Community Center for fund raisers and maintenance, blood drives, elementary school tutor, and Women’s Night Out activities. Her interest in the health care field was prompted by her close relationship with a family member who had a terminal illness.
Divine Savior Healthcare is proud of the accomplishments of all of our scholarship recipients and look forward to seeing their many future successes as well!
