Polly Gustafson presented the 2023 Frances E. Eide Memorial Nursing Scholarship to Natalie Novak and Megan Peterson.
The Frances A. Eide Memorial Nursing Scholarship has been established by South Dakota businessman Vern Eide, who is an alumni of Lincoln High School and brother of Frances. Frances Eide, who was a 1941 graduate of Lincoln High School, was born on June 14, 1923 and passed away on April 25, 1979 after a three-year battle with ovarian cancer.
The scholarship is to honor her life and the lives of the good nurses who cared for her. "We trust the scholarship money will help in aspiring young people to enter the nursing profession," states the Eide family.
The Frances A. Eide Memorial Nursing Scholarship will award scholarships for two students who are enrolled in a nursing program. Criteria is based on need and a C average or above
