Sue Conner Vauthier Memorial Scholarship Fund
St. Mary’s Medical Center Foundation, in conjunction with the family of Sue Conner Vauthier, has established a nursing scholarship to honor her memory. Sue was a dedicated and valued nurse who was passionate about serving the patients entrusted to her care. Sue served and cared for patients in St. Mary's ministry from 1978 to 1996, serving at St. Mary's Warrick and at St. Mary's Medical Center on 6 West and the Patient Care Division, Float/IV Therapy, before going to Gastroenterology Associates in Evansville. While the St. Mary’s community mourned the loss of Sue in the spring of 2004, the memory of her smile and Christian witness is still very much a part of our lives. This fund has been established to create a legacy to service to St. Mary’s.
The Sue Conner Vauthier fund is established to assist nursing students with their continuing education and advanced degrees. A committee representing the hospital and the family of Sue Conner Vauthier will direct the distributions from this fund. Scholarships will be provided on an annual basis to students who need financial assistance with their nursing education, and they will be named at the annual St. Mary’s Nursing Banquet. General criteria for receiving the scholarship will include:
- In the legacy of Sue Conner Vauthier, recipients must demonstrate the passion and desire to care for others. They should be Christ-like in their example, witnessing with everyday acts of kindness.
- Scholarship recipients must demonstrate a financial need.
- Scholarship recipients agree to serve St. Mary’s for at least one year after receiving financial assistance.
