Marie Narhi Shiesl Scholarship

The Marie Narhi Shiesl Scholarship has been established to provide funds to students in health care-related fields such as nursing, paramedic technology and other medical majors. Mrs. Shiesl spent many years working at Bedford Hospital in Bedford, Ohio, beginning as a nurses’ aide and later becoming a licensed practical nurse. As a widow raising two sons, she was unable to afford the training to become a registered nurse.

This scholarship honors the legacy of all nurses who have devoted their lives to caring for the sick and injured.
