Marshfield Clinic Minocqua Center annually provides two graduating students from Lakeland Union High School with college scholarships. The Clinic contributes to these students pursuing education toward a degree in a health-related field for each of their four years of college.
The recipients are chosen by the Lakeland High School Scholarship Committee and were awarded this year to Autum Bowen and Laura Rodriguez Torres. The Marshfield Clinic scholarships were presented by Dr. Bill Melms, regional medical director, Marshfield Clinic Minocqua Center, during the LUHS Scholarship Ceremony at the end of May.
"We feel that it is vitally important to support our local students who are interested in pursuing careers in health care," Melms said. "These talented students represent the future of health care for our community and we are honored to help them achieve their goals."
"We are extremely grateful for all of the services Marshfield Clinic provides to our community, especially with regard to our youth and families," LUHS school counselor Phil Burley said. "As a school counselor working on behalf of our children, the participation of Marshfield Clinic in granting scholarships has greatly influenced the lives of many students.
"Our school district has graduated a significant number of students who have pursued and completed a degree(s) dedicated to serving the physical and mental health needs of our citizenship. All of this has been made possible by Marshfield Clinic's significant financial contributions to the students of the Lakeland area."
