The Winona Health Foundation Scholarship Committee selected Jody Doebbert, RN, to receive the Phyllis A. McClenathan Nursing Scholarship.
Doebbert attends Walden University online and will graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. She currently is a registered nurse in the Winona Health Emergency Department, where she has cared for patients for the past ten years.
Dean McClenathan established this scholarship after his wife, Phyllis, a long-time nurse in Winona Health’s Family Birth Center, passed away after a long fight with cancer. In establishing this scholarship, McClenathan wanted to honor his wife by encouraging and helping others in their efforts to become devoted, effective and compassionate caregivers.
The McClenathan family directed memorials to the scholarship fund and hopes that others will contribute so that the fund will grow and continue in perpetuity. Gifts to the Phyllis McClenathan Nursing Scholarship may be made to the Winona Health Foundation, 855 Mankato Avenue, Winona, Minn., 55987.
Questions about the scholarship or about the Winona Health Foundation may be directed to 507.474.3328.
