Heathcare - Sanken-Hatz Scholarship

The Sanken-Hatz scholarship is awarded annually to encourage and support students pursuing health care careers. It was established in memory of Carl Sanken, a farmer from the Biscay area, and Don Hatz, a farmer and postal clerk from the Glencoe area. Both remembered us in their wills with generous bequests to the Glencoe Regional Health Foundation.

Awards for the following academic year will be made in the spring to qualified area high-school seniors and post-secondary students from the Glencoe Regional Health service area who are enrolled in approved health care careers.
