Mary Grace Cedeno Awarded the Eva D. Stubbe Memorial Scholarship

Mary Grace Cedeno, Spencer, has been awarded the Eva D. Stubbe Memorial Scholarship by the Northwest Iowa Community College Foundation. This $500 scholarship recognizes non-traditional students who have a career aspiration in either the healthcare or business fields. Mary Grace is an Associate Degree Nursing student at NCC.

The Eva D. Stubbe Memorial Scholarship was created to celebrate the life of a longtime NCC employee and supporter.  In the fall of 1967, Eva decided to further her education and attended night classes at the “new” community college.   It was a recommendation from her instructor that led to her hiring in January 1968 as a secretary in Adult Education and later in Administration. While working at NCC, she enrolled in various evening college courses to further her education. She continued working at NCC until she retired in July 1990.
