On Tuesday, April 8, 2014, Don and Sherry Shiesl donated $28,520.20 to Matanuska-Susitna College to endow a scholarship for MSC students in health-related fields. The permanently endowed fund will be known as the Marie Narhi Shiesl Scholarship in memory of Don Shiesl’s Mother. Marie Narhi Shiesl spent many years working at Bedford Hospital in Bedford, Ohio, starting as a nurses’ aide and later advancing to be a licensed practical nurse. She was also a widow raising two sons and was unable to afford the training that would have allowed her to become a registered nurse. The scholarship is intended to honor the legacy of all nurses who have devoted their lives to caring for the sick and injured.
