The Henry W. Hoppenstedt Nursing Scholarship program is made possible through the Henry W. Hoppenstedt Trust and was created in 2006 to advance nursing and nursing education. Heinrich "Henry" Wilhelm Hoppenstedt, born and raised near Herkimer, Kansas, spent his life farming and raising livestock. Of German descent, he was a member of Bethlehem Lutheran Church Bremen, Kansas. A patient of CMH, Hoppenstedt was especially fond of nursing staff members who cared for him during his stays at the hospital. Never married, Hoppenstedt considered the nursing staff his "family" and would often bring them gifts of candy and flowers.
Upon his death in November of 2004, Hoppenstedt's will provided for the establishment of the nursing scholarship program to be administered by CMH and awarded on an annual basis. Awarding the scholarship reflects Hoppenstedt's high regard for nurses and is an important way in which CMH can address today's nursing shortage and assist those students who are dedicating their careers to the nursing profession.
