Maquoketa High School senior Abbi Strathman was recently selected as one of five high school seniors to receive a $500 nursing scholarship from the MercyOne Dubuque Medical Center.

Strathman joins seniors from Beckman Catholic, Western Dubuque, Dubuque Hempstead and Central, Elkader to earn scholarships from MercyOne, which annually awards five graduating students in its service area who plan to pursue a career as a registered nurse.

Among the other requirements for the scholarship are a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher, two letters of recommendation, an essay describing the recipient’s interest in a nursing career, a resume of activities and acceptance into a four-year or community college.

The five recipients were chosen by a selection committee at MercyOne Dubuque Medical Center.
