Molly Wales of Athens and Lindsay J. Myers of Logan have each been awarded the David S. Fraedrich Memorial Scholarship for the Hocking College School of Nursing 2013-14 school year.
Wales was so impacted by the care she received when she gave birth to her first daughter that she suddenly knew she was meant to be a nurse. She plans to earn her BSN at Ohio University upon graduation from Hocking College and eventually earn her MSN to teach the next generation of nursing students. Myers is pursuing her degree as a Registered Nurse and plans to obtain her Bachelor's in Science in Nursing. She holds a job in the health care field in an assisted living faculty.
The Osteopathic Heritage Foundation of Nelsonville and Hocking College established the David S. Fraedrich Memorial Scholarship in celebration of David's life and the contributions he gave to the community. The scholarship is awarded each year to residents of Athens or Hocking counties enrolled in the nursing programs.
Students who are graduates of Nelsonville-York City Schools and those employed by Doctors Hospital of Nelsonville are given special consideration.
