Family of Dolores Meyer Provides Scholarship to Golden Valley Memorial Hospital Foundation

Clinton, Mo. – (Aug. 25, 2021) Golden Valley Memorial Hospital Foundation is delighted to announce that it recently received a donation to establish a scholarship for nursing students from the family of Dolores Meyer, a former Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare (GVMH) employee.

Meyer was employed at GVMH from 1973-2002. She was a registered nurse (RN) and held the position of Assistant Director of Nurses when she retired. In February of 2021, Meyer passed. To honor her memory, Meyer’s family made a donation to the Foundation to establish a scholarship to help a nursing student further their education. Meyer was very passionate about nursing and helping patients.

The recipient of the Dolores Meyer scholarship is Erin Stilson, RN. She works in the Outpatient Treatment Center as an Oncology Nurse and has been with GVMH for 10 years. Stilson is taking online classes through United States University to pursue a Master of Science in Nursing. Once she completes the program, Stilson plans to do her clinical work locally and then become a Family Nurse Practitioner at GVMH.

“We sincerely appreciate the generosity of the Meyer’s family to honor Dolores,” said Sarah Duncan, Foundation Director. “This scholarship provides opportunities to nurses in our community to advance their careers and ensures our patients will receive the highest quality of care.”
