Up to $5,000 in scholarships awarded to three Beaver Dam area high school graduating seniors

Beaver Dam, WI – June 21, 2017 – Beaver Dam Women’s Health has announced the recipients of its annual scholarship contest. Three Beaver Dam area high school seniors are the winners of up to $5,000 in scholarship funds.

The 2017 winners of the Beaver Dam Women's Health Scholarships are 2017 graduates of their respective high schools:

James Jimenez: Scholarship Recipient (up to $4,000 awarded)

Beaver Dam High School

Plans to attend the School of Engineering at UW-Madison and major in Mechanical Engineering

Allyson Engel: Achievement Award Winner ($500 awarded)

Beaver Dam High School

Plans to attend Madison Area Technical College and enter the RN associate’s degree program

Daniel Miller: Achievement Award Winner ($500 awarded)

Central Wisconsin Christian School

Plans to attend UW-Madison and pursue a degree in computer science

Jimenez and Engel have a very special tie to the clinic. Dr. Ken Ostermann, Beaver Dam Women’s Health co-founder, and Cindy Stippich, the clinic’s certified nursemidwife, delivered both students as newborns.

The annual scholarship contest is open to high school seniors who live within 15 miles of Beaver Dam, including the communities of Waupun, Columbus, and Horicon. Recipients wrote an essay as part of their application. Each described their plans for education after high school, their intended field of study, and how they plan to use their education to make the world a better place.

Ostermann explained why the scholarship contest is important to the practice. “Beaver Dam Women’s Health is very involved in the community. Our outreach efforts apply not only to our women patients and residents in the greater Beaver Dam area, but also to local young people who will be the productive and forward-thinking leaders of our future. Our annual scholarship contest is one way we can encourage the aspiring youth within our community, and provide financial support as they pursue a higher education and prepare for their future careers.”

“This year’s pool of scholarship applicants was very strong – it was not easy to choose the three winners,” Ostermann continued. “But the winning three high school students are truly outstanding young citizens of Beaver Dam, and we know each has a very bright future.”
