Lu Ann and Norma L. Gerlach Nursing Scholarship
The Lu Ann and Norma L. Gerlach Nursing Scholarship was established by Gene and Norma Gerlach, Lu Ann’s parents, and her brother Gary, at the time of her death when she was a junior nursing student. When Norma died, her name was added to the scholarship. Gene continued to support the fund until his death. Currently, Mr. Gary Gerlach and his wife Karen A. Connor continue to support the scholarship. The scholarship criteria are: a pre-licensure BSN student who exhibits professional promise, financial need (FAFSA required) and scholastic ability. Students must have completed the first semester of the program’s clinical work.
