Two Sheryl M. Venner Stoolman Scholarships Awarded

Tuesday, 15 May 2012

The funds were given to Drew Paulsen, a 2011 Carroll High School graduate and student at Morningside College, and Macy Stork, a 2010 Carroll High School graduate and student at Western Iowa Tech Community College. 

Sheryl Stoolman’s family has partnered with the St. Anthony Foundation to establish a scholarship fund, in Sheryl’s memory, to provide ongoing education to those with a passion and perseverance for excellent healthcare.

Sheryl, a daughter of Cyril and Anita (Bruch) Venner, received her LPN degree from St. Anthony School of Nursing and her RN degree from DMACC, where she continued as a part-time nursing instructor. Sheryl worked as an emergency room nurse at St. Anthony for 26 years and also as an EMT with the Carroll County Ambulance Service. Sheryl was a dedicated, compassionate and patient-focused nurse who always did whatever needed to be done to provide the best care possible. She touched the lives of countless people in the Carroll area. Many honors were bestowed throughout her career, including being recognized by Iowa Hospital Association as one of Iowa’s ‘Hospital Heroes’ for her exceptional nursing skills, dedication and contributions to our community. Sheryl died May 13, 2010 following an accident near Ogden, Iowa.

Dan Stoolman, Sheryl’s husband, said, “We received many donations in Sheryl’s memory.  Partnering with St. Anthony allows our family to stay involved in scholarship decisions while giving donors the advantage of making a tax deductible donation. We hope the fund will continue to grow with the goal of assisting nursing students and offering advanced education opportunities for healthcare workers.”
