2021 Doris A. Brelage Nursing Scholarship Recipient

Meredith McCreary of Batesville is the recipient of the 2021 Doris A. Brelage Nursing Scholarship.  The Doris A. Brelage Nursing Scholarship was established by the family and friends of Doris Brelage after her death. Doris was a registered nurse and EMS member; she spent thirty-seven years at Margaret Mary Community Hospital as Director of Nursing, Head of Surgical Nursing, and Director of Infection Control. The Ripley County Community Foundation is proud to administer the Doris A. Brelage Nursing Scholarship because Doris was a great example of the best Ripley County has to offer.  She was kind, generous, and dedicated to the community. Lisa Banks, RN, states, “Doris was a dedicated nurse, great friend, and mentor. I think she would be very proud to support Meredith in her nursing career. Meredith is an exemplary student and dedicated community servant.”
