Margaret & Wayne Hennegin Scholarship
A gift from a stranger can change your life. At least that is what Elnora Hennegin O’Neill, ’52, believed when she established a scholarship to honor her parents, Margaret and Wayne Hennegin. The scholarship will provide Northwest tuition, room & board for a female high school graduate from Worth County, Missouri. Wayne and Margaret of Sheridan, MO did everything they could to ensure that their two daughters had the resources they needed to get a higher education. Elnora’s creation of this scholarship was her way of saying thank you to her parents and providing a similar opportunity to women in the Worth County area. Elnora graduated from Northwest in 1952, majoring in biology. She died of cancer in 2001.
