Renee E. Overbeck Scholarship

Renee (Thatcher) Overbeck was able to attend Calvin College and pursue a nursing major because of the generous financial assistance she received through scholarships. She has worked as an RN since graduation in 2003 and has strong pride in the Calvin nursing program and great respect for the wonderful nurses it produces.
