Mark and Carol Schuller Memorial Awards First Scholarship

July 31, 2018
Emmetsburg News

At a ceremony on June 9, the first scholarship from the Mark and Carol Schuller Memorial Scholarship Fund was awarded to Anna Zwiefel. Zwiefel currently works with the Palo Alto County Health System in Emmetsburg and is attending Walden University.

The Mark and Carol Schuller Memorial Scholarship Fund, a fund of the Palo Alto County Community Foundation, awards scholarships to qualified Palo Alto County Health System staff pursuing a healthcare related degree. The fund was established by the children of Mark and Carol Schuller in appreciation of the support their family received from hospital staff in the final weeks of both Mark and Carol's lives as patients of the Palo Alto County Hospital.

"The memorial scholarship fund was created to thank the hospital and their staff for the incredible comfort and care they provided to our parents during their final days," said John Schuller, son of Mark and Carol.

Mark and Carol were lifelong residents of Palo Alto County, and while they did not attend college, they believed strongly in the importance of education.

"The Palo Alto County Community Foundation congratulates Ms. Zwiefel on her accomplishments and her passion for healthcare," said Don Miller, Palo Alto County Community Foundation committee chair. "We are honored to be able to award this first scholarship from the Mark and Carol Schuller Memorial Scholarship Fund to support her in her quest to further her education."

The Palo Alto County Community Foundation is an affiliate of the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa (CFNEIA). CFNEIA, in partnership with its 24 affiliate foundations, will be awarding nearly $400,000 in scholarships this spring.

The Palo Alto County Community Foundation was established to provide an opportunity for individuals, families, and businesses to give back to their community in a sustaining way. Establishing a fund, or making a gift to an existing fund, with the Community Foundation allows donors the opportunity to connect with causes they care about in communities they love.
