Alice M Oliver Nursing Scholarship
Alice was born on a farm east of Guilford, Missouri in 1911 where she lived much of her life with her husband Wesley H. Oliver. Living through the Great Depression of the early 20th century, she learned the value of practicality and saving money.
Although she had no children of her own, she doted on nieces and nephews and followed their growth and activities and education.
In her last few years of her life, Alice lived in an assisted living facility where she grew to love and respect those who provided her with care. She heard their stories of working hard while furthering their education and very much wanted to provide this scholarship with a nursing focus at Northwest.
After her death in 2010, portions of her estate were given to numerous charities that were near and dear to her heart, including Children’s Mercy Hospital, American Heart Association and the American Cancer Association. Another scholarship is endowed at South Nodaway R-IV Schools for high school students pursuing higher education.
