Richard J. Pasterkamp
This scholarship was established by the family and friends of Carol Pasterkamp for her commitment to nursing in the face of great adversity. During Carol’s years at Calvin, she was involved in a severe skiing accident. Carol was able to return to Calvin and complete her nursing training and then went on to work as a nurse in a school system as well as at the health department in Grand Rapids. Carol was deeply committed to helping children and families. Carol’s family and friends would like this scholarship to be awarded to a nursing student who faces special physical circumstances or is returning to school at a later age. In the alternative, the scholarship may be awarded to a student wishing to work in pediatrics.
