Steve Wilson, Rebekah Templin & Sandy Wilson

Riverwood Foundation announced that Rebekah Templin is the recipient of the 2018 Roger Wilson Scholarship. She is attending Northwest Technical College and working toward a Registered Nurse associate degree.

Templin currently works as a nursing assistant at Aitkin Health Services, and her long-term career goal is to become a nurse practitioner.

The Wilson family of Aitkin established the Roger Wilson Nursing Scholarship in Roger’s memory to help individuals better themselves.  These scholarship funds are intended to ease the burden of tuition costs so that aspiring students or health care professionals can obtain advanced training for licensed practical nurse or registered nurse degrees. The desired outcome is to enhance the local health care workforce and to strengthen the health system serving the Aitkin County and Garrison and Lake Mille Lacs area communities.
