Building the Next Generation of Healthcare Professionals

Jordan, Nothern, Shumate Healthcare Legacy Scholarship

The Medical Foundation is currently awarding a legacy scholarship in memory of Carl
Jordan, Jim Nothern and Denis Shumate. As civic leaders for many organizations across
Mitchell County, Carl Jordan, Jim Nothern, and Denis Shumate’s legacies live on today and are experienced through the intentional and compassionate leadership that each man dedicated their lives to in North Central Kansas. A distinguishing characteristic of Carl, Jim, and Denis was to continually learn, grow and encourage others to be better. In tribute to that spirit, the Sharon Jordan family, Shirley Nothern family and the Karen Shumate family established the Jordan, Nothern, Shumate Healthcare Legacy Scholarship.

In their memory and honor, the scholarship aids students pursuing careers in the healing
arts for the betterment of humankind. Applicants must be residents of Mitchell, Jewell,
Lincoln, Cloud, or Osborne County. Students should be pursuing a healthcare related field (e.g., medicine, nursing, mental health, occupational therapy, physical therapy, radiology, clinical laboratory or healthcare related fields) and or advancing medical certifications. Preference is given to post-secondary and non-traditional students. Applicants must demonstrate good character, citizenship, and leadership.
