Mikesell Scholarship Awarded
Moberly Area Community College recently awarded the Gladys Mikesell Memorial Scholarship to Ashley Morrison of Monroe City and Amanda Ingersoll of Moberly. Both are second year, Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) students at the Moberly campus.
Morrison and Ingersoll will split the $750 award, which was established in honor of Gladys Mikesell. Gladys Mikesell was the grandmother of Retired Colonel Jeff Mikesell of Papillion, Nebraska, who was a graduate of MACC in the mid-1980s. Mr. Mikesell's wife, Stacey, also received her ADN degree from MACC. The scholarship is given annually to second-year nursing students who exhibit outstanding academic and clinical performance in the MACC nursing program.
