The Foundation for Ripon Medical Center has named Grace Rauch, a Ripon High School senior, as the 2019 recipient of the $500 Arlene Fenner Family Endowed Scholarship.
Rauch is pursuing a biological sciences/premed degree at Arizona State University in Tempe. She is the daughter of Christopher and Jayne Rauch. Rauch was chosen from among area high school seniors, pursuing a career in health care that plan to attend a college or university in Wisconsin.
The Arlene Fenner Family Endowed Scholarship was started in 2005 after one of Ripon Medical Center’s valued volunteers, Arlene Fenner, passed away. She gave Ripon Medical Center 22 years of dedicated and unselfish service as an employee and volunteer.
The Fenner family, knowing her love of volunteering, wanted to give something to Ripon Medical Center in her memory. After deliberation, they decided to keep her memory alive by offering an annual scholarship to area students.
