St. Anthony Foundation Awards Susan Ludwig Scholarship



Wednesday, 06 June 2012

Heather is a 2009 Southern Cal High School graduate attending Des Moines Area Community College. In her application Heather said, “I am committed to working in a small town hospital to better the care that is available. I can see myself working at St. Anthony for many years to come. I didn’t know Sue, however I have heard a lot about her and this is motivation to keep going in my educational pursuit to be a nurse.”

The Susan D. Ludwig Memorial Scholarship was made possible by the hard work and dedication of all nursing staff at St. Anthony. During the week of May 7-11 the staff held various events to raise the money needed to support one student as they continue their education as a healthcare provider. In addition to the scholarship presented this year, a scholarship will be given in memory of Sue in each of the next four years.

Sue, a daughter of Dr. Lynn and Judy Curry of Carroll, graduated from Kuemper Catholic High School, received her RN degree from Methodist School of Nursing in Des Moines, and her BSN at Buena Vista University. For twenty years, Sue worked in the OB Department at St. Anthony Regional Hospital and she was also a member of the Breda Ambulance Service. Sue’s enthusiasm for fun, devotion to her career and unconditional love of her family and friends were evident in how she lived her life every day. Sue died November 8, 2011 following a courageous battle with cancer.

O.J. Ludwig, Sue’s husband, said, “Heather is a wonderful recipient to take Sue’s footsteps on her way to a nursing degree. On behalf of all of the family, we give Heather our best wishes.”
