St. Luke’s Volunteer Service Guild is pleased to announce the two winners of its 2013 Memorial Scholarship.

Hannah Rausch, of Fergus Falls and Sam Swanson, of Babbitt, both studying health care careers at the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, each received a $1,000 scholarship at the annual meeting of the St. Luke’s Volunteer Service Guild in Duluth.

Hannah, who just finished her first year of studying for a master’s degree in occupational therapy, told the volunteers: “Thank you for everything that you do and thank you for this amazing scholarship. It’s really going to help a lot next year.”

Sam, who is studying for his bachelor of nursing degree and plans ultimately to qualify as a nurse anesthetist, said he spent time helping his neighbors in his hometown of Babbitt.

“Thank you for your service, and thank you for this honor,” he said.

Each year, St. Luke’s Volunteer Service Guild awards scholarships to students pursuing a health care career in an accredited program at the University of Minnesota – Duluth, Lake Superior College or the College of St. Scholastica.
