Two Nursing Students at Lakeshore Technical College Receive Wisconsin League for Nursing Scholarships




Two nursing students at Lakeshore Technical College have been awarded scholarships by the Wisconsin League for Nursing. Pietje Markus received a $2,000 Bader Philanthropies, Inc. Gerontology Pre-Licensure Scholarship. Courtney Hunn received a $1,000 Pre-Licensure Associate Degree Nursing Deaconess Scholarship.

Markus and Hunn are among 19 recipients from around the state. The scholarships were issued based on program of study, interest in gerontology and mental health specialties, future nurse educators, and general nursing focus. 

Markus is a nursing-associate degree program student. She earned her nursing assistant technical diploma at LTC in 2005. She is employed as an emergency department technician at Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center and expects to graduate from LTC in May 2023.

Hunn, a Whitelaw resident, is also a nursing-associate degree student. She anticipates graduating in May 2023.

“We are very proud of our students and all they achieve. Knowing how competitive these scholarships are, we were especially excited to see that Pietje and Courtney were the only two-year college students selected. They are excellent representations of the high caliber nursing education students receive here at Lakeshore Technical College,” said LTC Dean of Nursing Michelle Zautner.
