Mindy Wimmer Witham “Overcomer” Memorial Scholarship Awarded by NCC Foundation

Isabelle Bugay, Sibley, has been awarded the Mindy Wimmer Witham “Overcomer” Memorial Scholarship by the Northwest Iowa Community College Foundation. This is a $500 scholarship. Bugay was selected due to her academic achievement, potential for success, and the ability to overcome obstacles in her life. Isabelle is currently an Associate of Arts student.

The purpose of the Mindy Wimmer Witham “Overcomer” Memorial Scholarship is to remember the life of Mindy Witham. She attended NCC for Administrative Secretarial and upon graduating, began an 18 year career in the Admissions Office of the College. Through Mindy’s many personal hardships, she always continued to put others first and worked hard to “overcome” any challenge that came her way. Mindy passed away after a courageous battle with cancer in March 2016 and will be remembered for her strong will and desire to “overcome” whatever obstacle is put in front of her.
